7B Nutritional Yeast
Our NutraFeast 7b Nutritional Yeast mineral product uses a non-GMO yeast strain (Saccharomyces cerevisiae). This strain naturally contains minimal amounts of Chromium, Copper, Manganese, Magnesium, Molybdenum, Selenium, and Zinc that are obtained from the molasses used in the culture media during the fermentation process. It also naturally contains seven B vitamins—B1 Thiamine, B2 Riboflavin, B3 Niacin, B5 Pantothenic Acid, B6 Pyridoxine, B7 Biotin, and B9 Folates, supporting a strong immune system.
Nutritional Yeast uses the same species of yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) that is used to make beer, bread or kombucha, but with a different end-product. It is a primary-grown yeast. That means it is cultivated specifically for its nutritional value and not as a by-product or a means to another recipe. The major difference between a baker’s or brewer’s yeast is that it is an active form, where as nutritional yeast is inactive, so it has no leavening ability. In other words, it will not reproduce inside you. There is a lot of misleading information regarding nutritional yeast and Candidiasis and how consuming too much of it will cause yeast to overgrow in your body. This just can’t happen because nutritional yeast is inactive and doesn’t contain Candida albicans.
As with all Cypress Systems inactive dry yeast products, the resulting chilled yeast cream is pasteurized through a high temperature sterilization system. This ensures inactivity of the yeast and that it also meets or exceeds established human food grade USDA microbial requirements.
