I've had nutritional yeast once before in the form of a "Mac and Chreese"-in-a-box product and loved it. While it wasn't as much cheesy as it was garlicky, I had high hopes that "nooch" could satisfy the instinctual human need for Velveeta-style "cheeze". I could never find it at a grocery store OR a health store so I finally ordered this on Amazon.

Wow. Yeah, I said wow. I used this in a recipe for "Cheeze Sauce" that was fat-free and it was amazing. Plus it had tons of protein, fiber, and of course the illustrious vitamin B-12! There are other similar recipes that call for LOTS of margarine that sound even cheesier and richer.

This bottle lasted me about 2 recipes with a little leftover for sprinkling, so if you're new to cooking with nutritional yeast this is a good size to start with. I've since bought a 22-oz container of a different brand, but this brand is just as good.

In conclusion...buy this, make lots of cheeze/chreese or any intentional misspelling of "cheese" you desire, be nice to animals and get 150% of your daily value of B-12.

I may have strange taste buds, but i find adding Red Star Nutritional Yeast to salads, soups, fresh veggies and dips adds a nice savory, earthy flavor. I've started using it as a salt substitute. Gotta love that!

I bought this product for the first time, but before I opened it, I read the label. I telephoned the company to inquire about the B-12. I was hoping they would tell me that the ingredient was methylcobalamin, not cyanocobalamin, but that was not the case. I research health and nutrition and I have repeatedly read the following: "If you have any vitamin B-12 supplements, check the ingredients label right now to see what form of vitamin B-12 they contain. If they contain cyanocobalamin, throw them out!

Cyanocobalamin is a cheap, synthetic chemical made in a laboratory. It's virtually impossible for you to find this form in nature. Low-end vitamin manufacturers use it because it can be bought in bulk and added to products with claims that they "contain vitamin B-12!" What they don't tell you is that the vitamin is bound to a toxic, poisonous cyanide molecule that must then be removed from your body by your liver. Cyanocobalamin is also up to 100 times cheaper than the higher quality methylcobalamin which we'll talk about below.

As Wikipedia explains: "A common synthetic form of the vitamin, cyanocobalamin, does not occur in nature, but is used in many pharmaceuticals and supplements, and as a food additive, because of its lower cost. In the body it is converted to the physiological forms, methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin, leaving behind the cyanide..."

I am disappointed that I am going to have to return the product. If more people were aware of this information, they would not be buying this product until the company made a change.

Whoever said healthy food does not taste good, never tried this stuff! I am a life long vegetarian but only started using nutritional yeast last year. This stuff tastes great and is so easy to use. I use it to make scrambled vegan eggs (with tofu). So many vegan recipes call for this stuff and I can see why. It's a powerhouse of nutrients and tastes like cheese!

This little bargain was worth every penny! I like the freshness of the nutritional yeast as some places only offer it in bulk at these prices! I have used this brand's yeast for baking and took a chance and I was pleasantly surprised.I used this for cheezy sauce,and in some vegan burgers to add a savory flavor;-)

After my husband had a heart attack I started looking for healthy, low-fat, low-sugar snacks... that he would actually eat. In Cooks Illustrated I read about the healthy snack of nutritional yeast flakes sprinkled onto popcorn. I bought some to try and can happily report it is delicious! Hubby was even licking his finger to get the last bits off the bottom of the popcorn bowl. Nutritional yeast has many other uses which can now be explored since it passed the critical taste test with hubby.
Being unable to find this product at health food stores I bought through Amazon. The price was fair and shipping was FREE.
We highly recommend this product.

There are no expiration dates on the bottles of yeast. I am assuming they have been setting a long time because the seals on the bottle are dried out and failing. The product arrived linking out of the bottles.

I have frequent acne breakouts and a tablespoon of this mixed into my low-sodium V8 at least once a day really helps to control the breakouts. It's been like magic for my skin. It doesn't cure everything, but it really keeps new break-outs to a minimum.
