Review - Sari Foods Nutritional Yeast Superfood

If you are a vegan, or a health nut, you've probably heard of Nutritional Yeast. It is considered a super-food and it is used in a lot of recipes to help mimic the texture and flavor of cheese. It is a little salty, helps make recipes creamy, or can just be sprinkled on foods to enhance flavor and nutritional value. It is dairy and gluten-free, and low in calories, fat, and sodium. We use it in our Vegan Nacho Cheese recipe, our Spaghetti Sprinkle, among other recipes here on the site.

This week, we got to try the Sari Foods brand Nutritional Yeast. Their nutritional yeast is 100% natural and not fortified with artificial vitamins. It is made of 50% vegan protein, 20% fiber, contains all 18 amino acids, and 15 different minerals. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that my OB/GYN let me know I'm NOT anemic during this pregnancy like I was in the last one, and I credit foods like this to make sure my health and iron levels are where they need to be.

The Sari Foods Nutritional Yeast is great tasting and I love that it is Non-GMO, Vegan, Non-Synthetic, and the ingredients are naturally occurring food. I know, food should be be required to be made up of food, but here in the US, it is NOT, so it is nice that this company makes these claims loud and clear on their packaging. I also love that this Nutritional Yeast full of vitamins, including large amounts of B1, B2, B5, and B6, which are hard to find in a lot of foods and it is a very fine texture so it can be easily mixed into anything.

To really have some fun with our Sari Foods Nutritional Yeast review, we decided to put it to the ultimate test and test it in a NEW recipe! I had a bunch of cauliflower left over from my Veggie Snowman Platter that needed to be used and I've been dying to try mashed cauliflower which is supposed to taste like mashed potatoes. What goes with mashed potatoes? Cheese! So Nutritional Yeast seemed like the perfect ingredient to add to this recipe, instead.

How did it turn out? Fabulous! I can certainly vouch for the fact that mashed cauliflower does taste very much like mashed potatoes and the nutritional yeast really added a savory flavor to it. My son and I gobbled it up and had seconds. I'll be posting the full recipe, soon, and buying more of this wonderful Sari Foods Nutritional Yeast to add to it.

Another great thing about Sari Foods Nutritional Yeast is that it is available on which makes it so easy to keep it in stock at my house and use it in a lot of our favorite recipes.
