Non-fortified Nutritional Yeast
Non-fortified Nutritional Yeast: Plant-based protein & Natural vitamin B complex for mental function
PRIORITIZE YOUR HEALTH WITH NATURAL OVER SYNTHETIC
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!
Optimize your health with super nutrients. Our nutritional yeast is an excellent source of both protein (a complete, bioavailable and vegan source) and fiber and contains all 18 amino acids and a multitude of different minerals (including iron, selenium and zinc) as well as a natural vitamin B-complex and Beta-glucans (known for their extreme immune enhancing properties plus their ability to lower bad cholesterol).
Look and feel your best with help from free-radicals! Sari Foods Nutritional Yeast also contains highly absorbable amounts of nucleotides (the building blocks of DNA & RNA), that promote cellular strength and regeneration. Then, by combining the two antioxidants glutathione and selenium, Nutritional Yeast Flakes create a special enzyme called glutathione peroxidase that is known to neutralize free radicals and help protect us from their damage.
Our Nutritional Yeast is grown on a mixture of sugar cane and sugar beet molasses, 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.

- 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 to 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?
Like with Vitamin B12, Our nutritional yeast is non-fortified, and therefore we have not added any synthetic vitamins that are not naturally occurring natural nutritional yeast (as nutritional yeast can not 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 to 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 have 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 them time to adjust.
- Why does your nutritional yeast cost more than others on the market when yours has had the fortification process removed? Shouldn't that make it cheaper?
Due to our unique status as a Non-fortified Nutritional Yeast option, we go against the market norm. This means that we deviate from the standard manufacturing process and require 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 which may handle these ingredients.
- Does your Nutritional Yeast contain MSG like compounds?
MSG is an excitotoxin, which literally over excites your cells and is known to cause several adverse effects. Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is a synthetic flavor enhancer added to mainly processed foods and is not something that is naturally occurring. Sari Foods Non-fortified Nutritional Yeast is naturally grown, is 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 is synthesised using natural Glutamic Acid which is chemically altered to become the harmful MSG we all want to avoid but Glutamic Acid in its original form is not harmful and our bodies are designed to utilize a certain amount of it. When 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 is the many other forms of artificial "flavoring" and yeast extracts found in processed foods that we should be avoiding.
- 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 detail please reach out further to firstname.lastname@example.org and we would be happy to answer your questions.
- Is your Nutritional Yeast Kosher?
Our Nutritional Yeast does not have a kosher certification, though the ingredients are to kosher standards. Our manufacturing partner has the kosher certification through Organized Kashrus Labs in Brooklyn, NY. Our product falls under their certification and is kosher pareve.
- 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.
