Nutritional yeast is a deactivated yeast, popular with vegans and vegetarians and may be used as an ingredient in recipes or as a condiment. It is a significant source of some B-Vitamins and contains trace amounts of several other vitamins and minerals. Sometimes nutritional yeast is fortified with vitamin B12.
Nutritional yeast has a strong flavor that is described as nutty, cheesy, or creamy, which makes it popular as an ingredient in cheese substitutes. It is often used by vegans in place of cheese, for example in mashed and fried potatoes, atop “scrambled” tofu, or as a topping for popcorn.
