We first went to whole foods but they wanted $20 a jar and for a smaller amount. This was great and eligible for prime! Worked great in the lacation cookies we made...no strong yeast taste. My supply went up and I even got leaky!!!
Stinks. Tastes bad if it's not masked in some sort of delicious baked product, and then makes the baked goods slightly less delicious. I bought it for milk production, and it did the job. The other reviewers aren't exaggerating when they say it's awful. But sometimes a mom has to do what a mom has to do.
Wish I had known about this for my first baby. The amount it boosts my production, is surprising. The taste is barely noticeable when baked. I put it in everything oatmeal, pancakes, lactation recipes, my regular baking recipes... Works wonders, highly recommended!
Trying to increase my milk supply. Taste like nutritional yeast but very bitter. Not sure if it is the same. Will update after a few days or weeks.
Update Taste bitter, not like N yeast. Couldnt taste it in cookies, even when using half of the sugar needed. Mom and 9year old loved the cookies too. Some days I used to just take a tsp of the poder straight and chase it down with juice. It would always get stuck on the roof of the mouth. But if you premix it with a tsp of sugar, or grounded oatmeal (I used my blendtec to make oatmeal flour) is easier to take it, you still need to chase it with water or juice.
I've consistently used this brand as an additional ingredient (along with ground flax seed) to my oatmeal cookies to make them "nursing" friendly. The combo of oatmeal, brewers yeast and ground flax create a dynamic fusion of milk increasing ingredients for nursing mom's looking to bolster their supply. The cookies taste wonderful and the brewers yeast flavor nicely compliments the recipe without being overpowering. My kids, family and friends love these cookies. The price was under ten bucks which is comparable to my local health supply store but the mail order delivery saves me a trip with a little one in tow. For those who are interested in making cookies, I found the recipe online but tweaked it a little because I like slightly softer cookies than how the original recipe turned out. Here's the recipe: Oatmeal Cookies (Lactation Friendly) 1 cup butter 1 cup sugar 1 cup brown sugar 4 tablespoons water 2 tablespoons ground flax seed meal 2 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 2 cups flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon salt 2 cups plain uncooked oats 1-2 cups chips of your choice (chocolate, butterscotch, white, peanut butter, etc.) 2-4 tablespoons brewers yeast (I use 4)
1. Preheat oven to 350 Fahrenheit 2. Mix flax seed and water and let it sit 3-5 minutes 3. Beat butter, sugar and brown sugar 4. Add eggs, mix 5. Add flax seed, vanilla and mix 6. Add flour, brewers yeast, baking soda, salt and mix 7. Stir in oats and chips of choice 8. Bake 12 minutes 9. Let cool a few minutes and move to cooling rack. Makes 4-5 dozen depending on cookie size. Around 110 calories each if using a pre-measured cookie scooping spoon.
I purchased this brand after reading positive reviews about it not being as bitter as other brands. I use it in my oatmeal and in no-bake lactation cookies. In both instances, I do not even notice that it is there and I put a heaping tablespoon into my bowl of oatmeal so I was surprised that I didn't taste it. It may be that the other ingredients or fruit I add to the oatmeal mask the flavor, but that just tells me it's not super strong which is good. After looking at other brands and their reviews, I settled on this one because other reviewers claimed it was far less bitter and I believe it is a good price for the amount you receive. If you are thinking of trying a Brewers Yeast, I would highly recommend this one.
I ordered this brewers yeast to help control my dogs fleas. It worked well in the recipe I used - equal parts coconut oil and brewers yeast on the stove. I switched from another brand of brewers yeast due to Twinlab's better price, and it is most certainly comparable. In addition, my dog loves these treats and they do effectively manage fleas.
