    Hi, Dianne,

    Nutritional Yeast is a flavor enhancer used in a lot of Vegan and Raw Food dishes because of the great nutrition it adds to your food. Here’s the information from the website of the brand that we use:…

    We found ours locally at Sprouts. There is a store locator on that site, under the PRODUCTS tab.

    I hope this helps!! ;)

    Leftover from the making of molasses. Tastes like Parmesan cheese.
