Brewer's yeast my studies I learnt that Brewer's yeast is a good source of vitamin B.  Now that I'm vegan, I have decided to take it on my food. Although rich in B vitamins, it doesn´t provide B12.  Apparently you can´t cook with it though as it loses its properties. The dosage they recommend is one TB with every meal.  I'll try it out over salad and vegetables to start with.

According to the box I bought, this is the nutritional content (per 100g):

  • 311 cals/ 100g
  • 3 g fat (1,5g saturated fat)
  • 11g carbohydrates (2,5g sugar)
