Dog biscuits required this product

I cannot verify the product’s taste but will reassure you that my lab loves his doggie biscuits made with nutritional yeast in recipe. Apparently this is very healthy. It is my intent to continue making homemade dog treats and this is not an easy product to find in general grocery stores.

If you aren’t eating this product….you are not getting that cheesy taste you crave!

I am a vegan..mostly raw. My downfall has been cheese.
This product has a cheesy taste and helps me with my cravings.

I have been using NOW brand of Nutritional Yeast Powder for about 2 years now. Originally, an internet article claimed it enhanced the hair, skin and nails. Then, lo and behold, a friend told me they used it, so I gave it a try. I do find quality effects, especially with my skin. I also found it does not work instantly. It takes awhile to get into the human system. So, if you are looking for an instant cure, ain’t gonna happen overnight!

About the taste – yeah, it’s funky! I disguise it by mixing it with wheat germ, ground flaxseed meal and (Optimum Nutrition) dark chocolate whey protein powder. This mix goes in my protein shake everyday and on my cereal ‘mush’, which is a combo of cooked steel cut oats and quinoa, enhanced by (my own mix of ) seeds and almonds, prunes, mashed banana, cayenne red pepper, turmeric and cinnamon. Mixing it either way, ‘mush’ or ‘shake’, kills the taste of the yeast powder.

(Hint, if you’re using cayenne red pepper or turmeric, or both, in a protein shake, you only need 1/16 of a teaspoon of each, or else!)
