o  Nutritional yeast is rich in nutrient slacking from vegetarian and vegan diets. It’s free of gluten, soy, and sugar. It is a great dietary addition for people with food sensitivities.

Fortified nutritional yeast is especially rich in B vitamins, including thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), and B6 and B12. Trace minerals. These include zinc, selenium, manganese, and molybdenum, which are involved in gene regulation, metabolism, growth, and immunity.
