Savoury yeast condiment with B12.
The vegan food with a cheesy, nutty taste made from primary inactive yeast without additives or preservatives. Rich in B vitamins and now with Zinc and B12. Engevita Yeast provides one of the richest natural sources of the B-group vitamins and trace elements. Engevita is a purely natural food, a primary strain of Saccharomyces Cerevasiae, grown on enriched purified molasses under carefully controlled conditions. This ensures freedom from candida albicans yeast.

Engevita is such a pleasant tasting yeast that it can be consumed as it is. It is also readily dissolved in water, milk, fruit or vegetable juices and can be sprinkled on soups, stews, casseroles, salads and breakfast cereals to enhance the flavour.

I tried this product for the first time so that I can use this in small quantities to make up my B12 amount. I also wanted to try this to add to ready salted crisps to make them more like cheese and onion. I like the cheese and nutty taste of these flakes and I will buy this product regularly.Reviewer's Name:

Makes a great 'cheese-flavour' substitute in many recipes, sauces and dressings and with the added benefit of B12, awesome! Reviewer's Name:

It has a mild cheesy-ish taste and dissolves very well in liquids which makes it so versatile. I use it mainly in miso soups and salad dressings, but as the other review pointed out, the variety of uses is virtually unlimited. Reviewer's Name:

Love it! When I first became plant based, I was reading lots of recipes with this in but being really scared of it but it creates such a depth of flavour - I wouldn't go as far to say it's 'cheesey' like most though. Excellent to make gravy with. And as a bonus is enriched with vital vitamins and minerals.Reviewer's Name:

I have recently purchased the "uncheese book" and basically each recipe requires yeast flakes. Unfortunately I found out that I don't particularly like the taste it's very strong, nutty and salted. I guess it's one of those things that you love or hate! Reviewer's Name:

Ever since I first discovered this I have been and continue to be impressed and have used it since regularly. I and my family use this as a food topping because it adds not only a nice taste but texture too and can sauces thicker and as described, more 'cheesy' though I don't really notice that myself unless using a lot of it and expressly for a 'cheesy' recipe. As a vegan, I personally take this for the B vitamins which are hard to get in other foods. So not only is it tasty but healthy too and can be had over and over without getting tired of it.Reviewer's Name:

I was a little unsure about using these initially as I find the strong smell overwhelming but they are great for using in sauces and casseroles to give a rich and full taste. I don't particularly like the taste of them on their own but they are a brilliant seasoning when cooking! For those who don't like the smell, don't worry, they just add a great depth of flavour.Reviewer's Name:

I can't recommend nutritional yeast highly enough for providing me with some extra, much-needed energy! You can use this as a cheese alternative in pasta sauces, etc, but I love the taste so much I eat this by the spoonful throughout the day whenever I'm feeling tired or peckish. Reviewer's Name:

This is a great product, I used to just buy the yeast flakes with no b12 but as my family prefer me preparing vegan food I think it's important to include products that have b12 in them. This fits the bill as I use it so much in my cooking.Reviewer's Name:

We originally bought a tub of this as a vegan cat food flavouring, as the B vitamins are good for cats. However, it didn't go down very well, but we tried some and certainly liked it! Seems to go with just about everything really, I've just dropped some on my rice dish now!
I'd say it was a good store cupboard item for any flourishing vegan. Reviewer's Name:

Really easy to add to a variety of dishes or -if you have strange eating habits like me -just eat as it is. I have found there to be quite a variation between batches though the texture seems to vary quite a bit.Reviewer's Name:

Really pleasant, mildly-nutty-cheesy flavoured flakes, with the added bonus of containing vitamin B12 - I can stop buying the B12 supplements now, I've started using this stuff on a regular basis! I thought 125g was going to be a very small container, and I did worry that it was rather expensive for such a small amount. However, it turned out to be large - the yeast flakes weigh so very little.Reviewer's Name:

It's amazing what you can do with yeast flakes. Vegans listen up...
Brown it off as a topping for cheese on toast
Add it to a risotto
Cheesify a soup
Whisk up into a cheese sauce for a vegetable lasagne
Create a cheese spread for sandwiches
Make a cheesy salad dressing
Melt over popcorn
Sprinkle onto mashed potato
Dissolve it in fruit juice!
Shake it into scrambled tofu or eggs
Some people even eat it straight from the box!Reviewer's Name:
