A: after googling to find the answers we all seek, apparently nutritional yeast flakes can be used in making bread. So my question is where to you find nutritional yeast flakes?
A: Nutritional yeast versus active dry yeast Nutritional yeast is not a substitute for active dry yeast, often referred to simply as yeast or baker’s yeast in recipes. Unlike nutritional yeast, active dry yeast is activated. It’s the ingredient in bread and other bakery products that make them rise. Active dry yeast is not used as a nutrient supplement, as it lacks the volume of nutritious goodies that nutritional yeast contains. What is nutritional yeast? Quite simply, it’s the deactivated form of a strain of yeast called Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the same species as baker’s and brewer’s yeast (deactivated is another word for dead or non-living yeast, that can no longer ferment). Nutritional yeast, or yeast seasoning as it is more commonly known in Australia, is fast becoming a substitute for seasonings like salt and pepper. Many people love its salty and slightly cheesy taste and it makes a great vegan alternative to parmesan cheese.
