Nutritional yeast is rich in many basic nutrients such as the B vitamins, chromium, sixteen amino acids, fourteen or more minerals, and seventeen vitamins (not including vitamins A, C and E). Yeast is also high in phosphorus. There are two primary sources from which nutritional yeast is grown: 1) Brewer’s yeast is grown from hops (a by-product of brewing beer), and 2) Primary grown yeast is grown from whey, blackstrap molasses or wood pulp. Nutritional yeast should not be confused with live baker’s yeast which can deplete the body of B vitamins and other nutrients.
