    What's your favorite brand of nutrional yeast?

    Since I've moved to France, I've been unable to find nutrional yeast. There's some look-a-likes, but nothing the same that has B12 in it. And it's usually made from beer and has a strange taste...

    So since I'm going to have to order online, I thought I'd take a poll and see what everyone's favorite brand(s) is(are). Or just as helpful - anything you recommend staying away from...

    Or, if anyone volunteers to bring over a big can or bag, the spare bedrooms are yours!

    Hey there,

    well, I dont eat nutritional yeast, so I cant recommend a brand, but in Germany we can get "Bierhefe" (the made from beer stuff youre referring to, I think) and "Würzhefeflocken", which should be more like the nutritional yeast you know. A common brand is Vitam (wegpage:, maybe you can get that in France, too. Or try asking at your health food store if they have "levure diététique en paillettes" or " de la levure maltée".

    HTH and good luck! icon_smile.gif

    That's the frustrating part, there are all these products that look the same, and probably even taste close to the same (if made from molasses). But they don't have that elusive B12 vitamin.

    Just yesterday I sent a note to asking about it, and they replied saying they don't have it and no one has ever asked. Which, actually, isn't too surprising because the French probably don't know it exists, and there likely aren't that many American vegans living in France who are big users of the stuff... icon_smile.gif

    So my search continues here and in the meantime I'll benefit from Amazon. Although, Loula, you are still welcome to pop in anytime, with or without Hefeflocken in your hands icon_biggrin.gif icon_biggrin.gif icon_biggrin.gif
