What is nutritional yeast?

Nutritional Yeast

Nutritional yeast is an inactive, good-tasting yeast with no leavening capability. Yellow in color, nutritional yeast comes in flake or powder form and has a cheesy flavour. Use in recipes, or try substituting it for parmesan cheese over pasta. Note: do not confuse with brewer's yeast, which is a white powder with a bitter flavour.
