What is Non-Fortified Nutritional Yeast?
Our Non-Fortified Nutritional Yeast (available in 8oz or 24oz) delivers fiber and protein with 18 amino acids and many different minerals that include iron and zinc, and it's full of Vitamins B. Being deficient in B vitamins can lead to fatigue, irritability, and even sleeplessness.
Our Nutritional Yeast is non-GMO and grown naturally in the United States on a mixture of sugar cane and sugar beet molasses and dried at a low temperature to "deactivate" it. While most nutritional yeast products are fortified with synthetic vitamins to increase the nutritional count, we believe that these man-made vitamins are not only unnecessary but that they can be harmful and toxic to our bodies forcing our kidneys and liver to work overtime while our bodies struggle to absorb them. This goes against everything we stand for, so we decided to change things and make a nutritional yeast product that is 100% whole food based and naturally occurring with nothing synthetic.

NUTRITIONAL YEAST FAQ
Does your nutritional yeast contain vitamin B12?
At Sari Foods, we believe it is important to offer a non-fortified nutritional yeast product, and this is why our nutritional yeast does not contain vitamin B12. Nutritional yeast is rich in other naturally occurring B vitamins and doesn't need additional synthetic vitamins, which we believe can do more harm than good.
Why does your nutritional yeast taste very different than other nutritional yeasts on the market?
Sari Foods Non-fortified Nutritional Yeast does taste different from other available nutritional yeast products—it has a much cleaner and fresher taste due to its lack of synthetic additives. Sometimes it can take a while for our taste buds to adjust to the flavor of pure and natural whole foods when they've been used to the taste of artificial nutrients. In these situations, we often suggest reducing the dose right down to a light pinch or sprinkle on food before building it back up again to allow taste buds time to adjust.
Why does your nutritional yeast cost more than others on the market when yours hasn't been fortified? Shouldn't that make it cheaper?
With our unique Non-Fortified Nutritional Yeast, we go against the market norm. This means that we deviate from the standard manufacturing process and utilize special techniques and procedures in order to create this special product without the synthetic additives.
Is your nutritional yeast manufactured with any potential allergens?
All our products, including our Non-Fortified Nutritional Yeast, are handled in a GMP facility. Our products are not manufactured with gluten, wheat, yeast, soy, milk, nuts, eggs, or shellfish. They are packaged in a facility that may handle these ingredients.
Does your Nutritional Yeast contain MSG like compounds?
Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is an excitotoxin that literally overexcites your cells and is known to cause several adverse effects—it's also is a synthetic flavor enhancer added to many processed foods. Sari Foods Non-Fortified Nutritional Yeast is naturally grown, 100% yeast with no fortification of synthetic additives, including MSG. The MSG confusion may come from a misunderstanding regarding naturally occurring glutamic acid. Glutamic acid is an amino acid, and amino acids are crucial in the human body. Synthetic MSG, however, is synthesized using natural glutamic acid that is chemically altered to become the harmful MSG we all want to avoid. Glutamic acid in its original form is not harmful and our bodies are designed to utilize a certain amount of it. And when it's naturally occurring, like in nutritional yeast, glutamic acid is in a bound form, which is naturally broken down into its free form so that it can enter the bloodstream and be released by the liver to be used by the brain. It's the many other forms of artificial "flavoring" and yeast extracts found in processed foods that we should avoid.
Is your Nutritional Yeast Non-GMO?
Our nutritional yeast is Non-GMO following EEC regulations. It also contains no GMO enzymes and has not been solvent-extracted, synthetically preserved, or irradiated.
