In addition to being a "Superfood" (from the Westin-Price Foundation's list), this brand is reported to be produced using low temperatures. High temperature nutritional yeast products apparently yield elevated concentrations of the excitotoxin glutamate as a by-product. This is why I chose Frontier Nutritional Yeast over Red Star.

To be honest, I can't believe all the good reviews this product got. I've been using yeast flakes for years, and this brand is just awful. First of all, it's more like a powder than a flake, but more importantly, it has a strong, bitter taste other brands I've tried just don't have.

I use yeast flakes as a substitute for grated cheese (I'm a plant-based eater), and KAL and Bob's Red Mill brands for example, are excellent - mild tasting and delicious. I dislike giving bad reviews, but I'll never order this product again. Amazon carries both KAL and Bob's Red Mill brands. You can't go wrong with those.

O.k. so I want to put to rest some worries and concerns people have. As the previous reviewers have stated this product is produced at a lower temp and therefore has less chance of containing MSG. As far as taste goes it is awesome, it is not addicting as one would associate with a MSG laden product. And compared to Red Star it is going to taste less desirable, however it is my understanding that Red Star's parent organization is a major producer of flavor and food enhancers, so you can put two and two together and figure out why so many people pick Red Star over this. I have ordered two bags already, and i am getting ready to order a third. I know when I have eaten MSG as a vegan it readily affects my stomach and head, and this yeast has no effect on me. It tastes great and I use it in a lot of my recipes for the added b vitamins.

We've been using this for years, bought from the bulk food bins so I really never knew what brand I was buying till I went for a refill and nobody had it anymore. Then came the big search. The main thing I knew about it was that it was mini flake.

As I looked online, I realized I could end up spending a lot of money and end up with a lot of yeast we didn't like. So I picked up some Bob's in powder form locally, to try. Didn't care for the smell so I was hesitant about actually using it, but I hadn't quite run out yet. Then wonder of wonders a local store had Frontier mini flake and when I bought some and got it home, I knew it was the mini flake we all knew and loved!

Taste, of course, is a matter of taste! Well this is the one for us. I really have to wonder about the reviewers (of other brands) who say the yeast tastes like cheese. ???? I think they've been vegan so long they don't really remember cheese. Anyway I'm not looking for imitation cheese.

The things I use this for are:
add to soup
add to gravy
mix with wheat germ and cornmeal as a breading for deep-fried marinated tofu (only make that for special occasions anymore)
mix with salt and garlic powder for popcorn (spray with Pam-type butter-flavor spray, then sprinkle and stir)

The mini flake is a size that works for all these purposes. I've used large flake for breading and that works fine but it wouldn't work so well on popcorn. Powder is too fine for breading but would probably be OK for my other uses. We're very happy to find this yeast.

Having used Kal, Red Star, and then this brand, I must say that these have a less desirable flavor than the before mentioned brands. They smell different and taste slightly different. I will probably go back to the Kal brand.

I had only had flakes before. I had no idea the powder form would be different, but it is. The product is not in flake form. It's fine, but the flavor, blending and texture of actual flaked nutritional yeast is better.

This is an excellent nutritional yeast, grown from molasses, so it is gluten free. It is produced at low temperatures, so no MSG is formed. It dissolves easily, which is a necessity when using it for making the Weston A Price Foundation homemade baby formula. It has a delicious flavor and our family loves it sprinkled on popcorn. I've also heard it's good sprinkled on steamed veggies such as broccoli, although I haven't tried this yet.

Top o' the line nutritional yeast.

Completes a feast for (wo)man or beast.

'Twill flavor to savor, (adds interest at least).

Best I've found looking north, south, west, and east.
