Product Overview


  • Non-Irradiated
  • Kosher

Produced by culturing yeast with sugarcane and beet molasses, nutritional yeast has a strong flavor described as nutty, cheesy, or creamy. Used in place of Parmesan cheese, or as a topping for popcorn, it’s a source of protein and B-complex vitamins, and naturally low in fat and sodium.

Suggested Use

Poppy Seed Butter Crescents


2 Packages (0.25-ounces each) active dry yeast or 5 teaspoons active dry yeast

1/2 cup water (warm for dry yeast, lukewarm for compressed)

2 cups milk, scalded

1 cup (2 sticks) butter

1 cup sugar

3/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon grated lemon peel

2 egg yolks, beaten

8 cups flour

4 tablespoons melted butter

1 egg white, beaten

2 scant teaspoons poppy seeds

natural Swiss cheese, thinly sliced

Sprinkle or crumble yeast into water; stir until dissolved.

Pour hot milk into large mixing bowl. Add butter in pieces, and stir until melted. Stir in sugar, salt, and lemon peel. When cooled to lukewarm, stir in egg yolks. Stir in 2 cups of the flour; beat until smooth. Add yeast mixture and enough additional flour to make a moderately firm dough; beat with a spoon until smooth. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 2 hours.

Punch down. Divide dough into 4 parts. On a lightly floured board, roll each part into a 10-inch circle. Brush with melted butter. Cut into 8 wedges. Roll up each piece, starting at wide end. Place on a greased baking sheet, folded edge down. Allow to rise in warm place until almost double bulk, about 1 hour.

Gently brush with beaten egg white; sprinkle with poppy seeds. Bake in a hot oven (425�)for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire rack to cool slightly. Split and fill with overlapping cheese slices.

Yeast, sorbitan monostearate.

Works great. Put it in a glass jar and then in the refrigerator as soon as I received it. It works very well in my bread.

Thanks for your feedback!

I switched to this brand after they stopped sell Bob's Red Mill. It's a good yeast, better than the packages I have bought in the supermarket. Remember this is not instant yeast so it needs to be activated before adding to dry ingredients.

Thanks for your feedback!

The product description is totally wrong!

Posted by Reviewer1332151 on May 13, 2013 | Verified Purchase

The product description given is totally wrong - and I do not know whos fault it is - the producer or iherb. it says that "has a strong flavor described as nutty, cheesy, or creamy. Used in place of Parmesan cheese, or as a topping for popcorn", which is not even close to be true. I have ordered this producst - the yeast look like granulated mass which almost does not have any smell. It appeared that those yeast should be used only for baking! Why would I need almost half kilo of dry yeast for baking? Please correct the product description! and I am totally disappointed in this purchase

Thanks for your feedback!

Good Product
