Nutritional Yeast: What is it?

Nutritional yeast is  is made from a single-celled organism, Saccharomyces Cerevisiae, which is grown on molasses and then harvested, washed, and dried with heat to kill or “deactivate” it. Because it’s inactive, it doesn’t froth or grow like baking yeast does so it has no leavening ability. This is ideal for those with delicate digestive systems, excessive bloating and abdominal cramps.
