Savoury Yeast Flakes
Basically Savoury Yeast is deactivated yeast which comes in crisp golden flakes. You may be thinking of brewers yeast, which is used to make beer – this isn’t the same as savoury yeast but it’s related. Savoury Yeast is also different from the yeast used in baking, it’s deactivated meaning that it doesn’t froth or foam.
It also has various health benefits. Savoury Yeast is reasonably high in vitamin B12, is a complete protein, low in fat and sodium. It is also free of sugar and gluten and contains iron.
This product is often used by vegans as a substitute for cheese – it has a tangy, cheesy flavour. No animals were harmed in the making of our Flannerys Own Savoury Yeast – as yeast is a member of the fungi family similar to mushrooms.
Looking to add some Savoury Yeast to your diet for a cheesy flavour hit that is full of vitamins & minerals? We recommend starting off small. Try using Savoury Yeast as a replacement for parmasen cheese. Sprinkle it on soups, salads, pasta & pizza.
