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 some 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.
