More about Marigold Yeast Flakes with Vitamin 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 (cyanocobalamin). 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.

Serving Suggestion

The ideal condiment for soups, stews and toppings.


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.


Dried inactive yeast

Like others have said, great substitute for Parmesan - great subtle nutty flavour! Plus, one container lasts me for months, only need a little.

- Fri 21st Apr 2017

What a great product! So yummy!!! Specially on my vegan parmesan cheese.

- Tue 4th Apr 2017

This is such a fantastic ingredient. Vital for nut cheese recipes and is also great sprinkled on pasta dishes like a parmesan.

Nutritional Yeast with B12 - Tue 10th Jan 2017

I really like the taste. It's a great addition to sauces, on top of pasta, on top of soup.

Great - Sat 17th Dec 2016

Was glad to find this here the price is great. I stir it mostly in pasta and pasta sauce, and sprinkle it on almost everything, and it's a cupboard staple now.

Marigold Yeast Flakes with Vitamin B12 - Tue 9th Aug 2016

Doesn't have as much of a cheesy flavour compared to the Marigold original nutritional yeast, but the added B12 makes up for that. I prefer using NY to using the MSG laden vegan cheeses.

- Mon 25th Apr 2016

Excellent. Never thought I would fall in love with this stuff but quite honestly, I have to stop myself from adding it to every meal. Easy to use, lovely slightly cheesy taste, and reasonably priced.

- Sat 23rd Apr 2016

Very cheesy, excellent replacement if your on a low fodmap diet and want to make things have a bit more taste

- Mon 11th Apr 2016

Love it! Cannot rate it enough. 1 tablespoon provides enough B12 for an adult and half a tablespoon for a child daily. My 6 year old does not mind it one bit and we sprinkle it over dinner every night. About to order 3 more boxes as ran out.

3 - Thu 18th Feb 2016

I love this stuff, put it in or on all kinds of dishes - really good on broccoli, potato, and cheddar soup. I wouldn't describe it as 'cheesy' as others do, more of a nutty-savoury flavour - a bit like a less concentrated Marmite without the salt. I have improvised a quick 'cheeze' with it that I was pleased with though: grind cashews with nutritional yeast and sea salt, add lemon juice until it just comes together. I crumbled it over a homemade veggie pizza before baking, and it came out delicious - nice change from regular cheese :)

- Mon 21st Dec 2015

Delicious and versatile. I love it mixed into cooked hot rice.

Indispensable for vegans - Tue 8th Dec 2015

No vegan cupboard is complete without this. It is absolutely delicious: we mostly use it sprinkled on pasta or soup, or mixed in with mashed potatoes etc. Very healthy as well, 50% protein and with added B12 is even better.

- Tue 29th Sep 2015

These look a little odd but add so much flavour to many recipes. I like using them to make kale chips, adding the flakes alongside tamari, olive oil and black pepper to the kale before cooking.

- Tue 15th Sep 2015

Awesome to add a cheesy taste to kale chips and vegan sauces and it has added Vitamin B12 too!

Wonderful - Mon 24th Aug 2015

I have been buying this for years and love it. I add some to at least one meal each day. Has a nice 'cheesy' taste and is great in pretty much any of my savoury meals. Mixed in with avocado, or pesto, or soup, salad, tomato-based dishes, all sorts. A vegan essential :-)

- Sat 8th Aug 2015

It is imperative for vegans to take B12 seriously. There are very few vegan food sources and if you don't eat stuff like this, or other fortified products then you run serious risk of irreversible, long term damage to your brain and nervous system. It is not a vitamin that can be ignored.

- Thu 23rd Jul 2015

As a new vegan I had read a lot about nutritional yeast and was very excited to finally try some (especially since its meant to be like cheese). I can confirm it really is worth the hype and makes the perfect addition to salads, lasagnes, pastas - pretty much everything. Even my fussy eater mum who is very much a meat and dairy fan thought it was delicious so that is high praise indeed!

Great! - Mon 6th Jul 2015

Adds a lovely 'cheese' flavour to Vegan meals, great to use in homemade Pesto and sprinkled over pasta dishes - I love it! Highly recommended.

Yum - Sun 25th May 2014

I was dubious of the taste at first but for no reason, it tastes splendid! I put it in everything, smoothies, salads, pastas! It melts and creates a gooey consistency in pasta which is fabulous. Buy this, worth every penny.

Delicious and versatile - Fri 21st Feb 2014

At first I was sceptical about the cheesy/nutty flavour other reviewers had claimed but I have to agree with them and it is absolutely delicious! They can be used in a variety of recipes, the latest as a topping for vegan black bean burritos. They also favour well with me as they contain a variety of important vitamins and minerals, including B12.

- Wed 2nd Oct 2013

These flakes are very tasty, we sprinkle them on all our savoury dishes, also make a great vegan cheese sauce.

Healthy - Tue 17th Sep 2013

I use these mild cheesy tasting yeast flakes regularly as a food topping for the nice taste and for the vitamin B12.

Nutritious nutritional yeast - Mon 13th May 2013

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.

- Tue 2nd Apr 2013

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.

Versatile & savoury - Tue 12th Mar 2013

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.

- Wed 20th Feb 2013

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.

- Thu 13th Dec 2012

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.

- Tue 11th Dec 2012

My friend introduced me to this stuff and now I add it to most dishes. Even on popcorn. Great to use as it adds flavour re dicing need for salt

- Sat 8th Dec 2012

Great to add flavour to sauces and stews and has benefit of b vitamins

Great for sauces - Fri 30th Nov 2012

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.

- Thu 29th Nov 2012

This is a lovely product, a favourite in our household for garnishing salads, pastas and meats!

Taste it with Vitmins - Thu 15th Nov 2012

Great taste and a source of vital vitamins for all mealtimes.

A kitchen staple - Sat 3rd Nov 2012

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.

- Tue 16th Oct 2012

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!

Do not be afraid... - Wed 29th Feb 2012

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.

- Tue 7th Feb 2012

This is so delicious I eat it straight from the box. I find it very hard to stop.

easy-cheesy B12 - Mon 23rd Jan 2012

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.

- Sun 8th Jan 2012

First try, delicious and incredibly health proving. I'd also like to leave a note to say, an excellent service for delivery of my goods from Goodness Direct. Thank you

- Thu 5th Jan 2012

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

- Fri 30th Dec 2011

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.


Try... - Wed 13th Jun 2012

Try seasoning corn-on-the-cob with yeast flakes.

- Fri 1st Jul 2011

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!
