Nutritional yeast is a source of B vitamins, including thiamine, folate, B-6 and niacin. Just a half tablespoon of some brands will provide you with a day's worth of B vitamins, while other brands offer between 30 and 100 percent of B vitamins. These vitamins help you extract the energy from food and produce red blood cells. Many types of nutritional yeast are also fortified with vitamin B-12.
“Nutritional yeast is a plant-based source of protein, making it a staple in many vegan kitchens,”The protein and fibre content promote satiety at meals and the B vitamins help in energy production.
