    Hi, I live in South Africa and have no idea what Nutritional Yeast is…? My daughter has dairy and soy allergies as well as peanuts and most legumes. I’m interested in your cheese substitutes, not so much for her but for me! When I’m breastfeeding (nursing) I have to be on her allergy-free diet. We have instant dry yeast that comes in sachets for breadmaking but I’m pretty sure that’s not what you’re referring to. Is it called by any other name?

      Hi Nicole, nutritional yeast is quite different from the yeast that you would use in breadmaking. It is an inactive yeast that has a pungent almost cheesy flavor and is typically fortified with B vitamins (hence the “nutritional” name). It comes in flakes or powder that are a mustardy yellow color and quite lightweight – not nearly as heavy as active yeast. I’m not sure where you could source it in South Africa – perhaps online or from a natural food store?
