Is our nutritional yeast Non-GMO?

Yes. Our nutritional yeast supplier is NGE CERTIFIED (certified non-genetically engineered).

GMO testing has shown there is no GMO protein or DNA in the raw materials used as the growth substrate. The nutritional yeast is considered non-GMO, following EEC regulations. They contain no GMO enzymes, have not been solvent-extracted, synthetically preserved, or irradiated. They contain no artificial flavors or colors. There is no sewer sludge, petrochemical substrate, or sulfite waste liquor involved with any step of production. These products comply with NOP regulation 205.605(a)(20) and with 7 CFR 205.301(b&c).

What is the nutritional yeast grown on?

The substrate is a combination of beet molasses and corn sugar as the carbohydrate source. The carbohydrate source is consumed by the yeast during the growth process and is not present in the finished product.

Is the nutritional yeast grown on sulfured or unsulfured molasses?

The nutritional yeast is grown on unsulfured molasses.

Are any sulfites added at any point of the processing?


Are synthetic vitamins added or are they produced naturally?

Nothing is added and all vitamins and minerals occur naturally. Nothing synthetic is added to our nutritional yeast.

Is it free of candida Albicans?

Yes, our yeast does not contain candida Albicans. Some websites promote the idea that dried nutritional yeast which is not alive, may cause issues for those who may have a candida overgrowth in their body. Everyone of these websites are promoting only their opinion and we have yet to see scientific data showing proof of any kind. Please, if you are reading this and you have scientific research showing proof, please forward to us here at Foods Alive. We are always looking for the truth in everything we do.

We also want to add that we need to stay in tune with our bodies and notice how we feel after eating any type of food. 

Does our nutritional yeast contain MSG?

Nutritional yeast contains naturally occurring glutamate. The glutamate found in nutritional yeast is “bound” to other amino acids or proteins meaning your body can control how much is absorbed and the rest can be passed off as waste.
