Non-Fortified Nutritional Yeast Flakes


Most nutritional yeast products are fortified with excessive amounts of synthetic vitamins to increase the nutritional count. At Sari Foods, we believe that these man-made vitamins are not only unnecessary but that they can be harmful and toxic to our bodies, causing nutrient imbalances and 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, making a nutritional yeast product that is 100% whole food based and naturally occurring–nothing synthetic here–just as nature intended!

Nourish your body with super nutrients and plant-based protein. Sari Foods Nutritional Yeast is naturally delivers fiber and protein (a complete, bioavailable, and vegan source) with 18 amino acids and a multitude of different minerals (including iron, molybdenum, selenium, and zinc).

Feel your best with B vitamins. 15-40 percent of Americans are deficient in B vitamins. Sari Foods Non-Fortified Nutritional Yeast is nature’s vitamin B complex: it’s naturally rich in several B vitamins such as B1, B3, B5, & B6, all of which have key functions in our bodies and can help you feel your best each day.


Our Nutritional Yeast is grown on a mixture of sugar cane and sugar beet molasses, right here in the United States.

Sari Foods Non-Fortified Nutritional Yeast is Non-GMO and is grown naturally on molasses before being harvested, washed, and dried at a low temperature to "deactivate" it.

We regularly test our Nutritional Yeast (along with all our other products) to ensure only the highest quality. We test each batch for toxic metals, contaminants, and other organisms. Our results show no contaminants, no detectable levels of lead, and no GMO protein or DNA in the raw materials used as growth substrate.

If you would like to see test certificates, please reach out using our contact form or by calling our toll free number—we are more than happy to share details with you as part of our transparent customer service policy.



End your energy crisis. Being deficient in B vitamins can lead to fatigue, irritability, and even sleepless nights (as they play a crucial role in melatonin production). And the body depends on B6 to make the hormones serotonin and norepinephrine, which affect both mood and feelings of happiness. Nutritional yeast, with all its B vitamins, can help us feel and function at our very best.

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.

If you are looking for a natural Vitamin B12, our Organic Spirulina offers 250% of your RDA of B12 in just one serving.

Does your nutritional yeast contain folate?

Our nutritional yeast is non-fortified, which means we have not added any synthetic vitamins that are not naturally occurring in nutritional yeast (as nutritional yeast cannot produce B12 or folate). Our product does have B1, B2, B5, and B6, as well as 18 amino acids and 15 minerals.

Why does your nutritional yeast taste very different than other nutritional yeasts on the market?

Sari Foods Non-fortified Nutritional Yeast does taste different to 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 bee 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.

Do you test your Nutritional Yeast for toxic levels of lead?

Yes! We regularly test all of our products and are happy to share the results of these tests with you. We test each batch for toxic metals, contaminants, and other organisms. Our results show no contaminants, no detectable levels of lead, and no GMO protein or DNA in the raw materials used as growth substrate. If you would like more details, please reach out to and we will be happy to answer your questions.

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.
