These crunchy flakes of pure brewer's yeast have a delicious nutlike flavor. They will not turn gooey in your mouth. The special processing of these flakes makes them ideal for sprinkling on food. We recommend our regular Brewer's Yeast or our amazing Brewer's Yeast Buds for use in liquids.

Brewer’s yeast is one of the most perfect foods known. Loaded with proteins, minerals and vitamins, it is amazing how much food value is packed into even a small amount. It provides the protein you want without the extra calories and cholesterol you don’t. Since it is low in fat, carbohydrates, sodium and calories, it is especially useful for dieters, vegetarians, diabetics and hypoglycemics. In fact, it seems to have a bounty of nutritional goodness for just about everybody.

The microscopic plant, saccharomyces cerevisiae, commonly referred to as brewer’s yeast, is nutritionally superior to all other types of yeast. It is one of the best natural sources of the entire B-Vitamin complex. It is a superb source of concentrated protein including all the essential amino acids. In fact, brewer’s yeast contains about ten times as much protein as the same amount of whole-wheat flour.

It is extraordinarily rich in nucleic acid, which is a basic element in cell development and is believed to retard the aging process. It is the best nutritional source of chromium, which occurs in brewer’s yeast in an organic compound known as GTF (glucose tolerance factor). This vital factor is essential for the production of functionally effective insulin, without which the body cannot handle glucose—its major fuel. Hypoglycemia results when the blood sugar level rapidly shoots upward, followed by a rapid release of insulin, which in turn overshoots the mark and drives the blood sugar too low. The role of GTF is to moderate insulin activity. First, by potentiatiing and circulating insulin and then by reducing the amount required to be released. This moderating effect of GTF is important, not only for diabetics and hypoglycemics, but also many of those who have increased hunger or craving for sweets. Brewer’s yeast has at least ten times more GTF activity than any other natural food.
