IN A NUTSHELL: VERY GOOD TASTING “REAL BREWER’S YEAST” — NOTHING ADDED

This “Genuine Brewer’s Yeast” powder tastes very good for real Brewers Yeast. Having said that, remember this is not a vitamin or mineral — BREWER’S YEAST is one of the ultimate super-foods, a veritable food supplement by itself. Traditionally, people who have been involved with weight lifting, body building or competitive sports that require strength, and muscle building have found that Brewer’s Yeast had preceded them. It has very well balanced amino-acids plus all the B-complex vitamins which include large doses of Inositol and Choline. Add to this, the best, and most bioavailable source of chromium and selenium too, as well as many trace minerals and elements. AND – they’re all naturally occurring — nothing is added, no preservatives, sugars or additives of any kind. Really good food is what this Brewer’s Yeast is, and you can add it to many things. Right now, I have a tablespoon mixed in with a huge glass of very diluted orange juice, but you can put it in anything you want, including; casseroles, yogurt, soup, juices, meat loaf, salads, milk and of course water. Honestly, I have been using this stuff on myself for over 40 years. Truly, I’ve never gotten over the wonder of how well, and alert Brewer’s Yeast has always made me feel. My guess is that the large quantities of Inositol and Choline are the key to the alertness, combined with the natural amino-acids.

BOTTOM LINE: GREAT PRODUCT — EXCELLENT PRICE

I usually shop this item for the best price as it is handled by all the large vendors that sell via Amazon including Swanson’s. Interestingly, the larger vendors tend to have fresher product, and this is evidenced by the expiration date on the jar which typically gives you about 2 years on these vacuum sealed containers.

Hold the beer, just give me the yeast!

I ordered this as what is said to be a more bio-available source of chromium and B12, as well as essential amino acids, vitamins, minerals and trace elements, vs most of the peddled chromium supplements. I haven’t tried sprinkling it directly on food but I have enjoyed adding it to my shakes and the flavors it imparts. A blender helps when adding to liquids as it seems to mix about as well as powdered cocoa.

really horrible taste when added to a protein drink

I was looking for a brewers yeast that I could add to my protein drink so as to be able to get the amazing health benefits of brewers yeast also. This yeast, while I am sure is quite healthy and a huge health benefit, tastes horrible.

The taste so changes the taste of the protein drink, that I found that I actually skipped drinking my protein drink rather than have to endure the taste of it with this brewers yeast.

Epic Fail. Now on to try to find a brewers yeast that doesnt make me shudder.

Good taste, bad solubility

I started taking brewers yeast because the large amount of chromium in it is supposed to be very good for your skin, especially if it’s acne prone. I’ve been taking it since the end of January and my skin still breaks out a little bit, but I stopped taking it for a couple of days and my face broke out a lot so I suppose that it is having some sort of an effect. An online review I read said that most people’s skin cleared after eight months in an study, so I am staying positive.

I started out by taking Swansons’ Brewer’s Yeast Powder, and mixed it in smoothies and grapefruit juice. I tried mixing it in orange juice, which was pretty bad, and even just having it with water, which was horrible and made me gag. Because I wasn’t crazy about the taste, I read some reviews and decided to try this product next. The taste is much better, it is much less noticeable, especially if I add a little bit of peanut butter or grapefruit juice to the smoothies. The taste is also not at all noticeable in warmed apple juice. I don’t have the courage to try it in plain water, though.

What I dislike about this product is that it does not dissolve well. I cannot stir it in any cold liquid without getting clumps (hopeless when stirred with a spoon or knife, somewhat works when stirred with a fork but little clumps remain), I can barely dissolve all of it in warmed liquids, and if I put it first in my blender when I make the smoothies, a lot of it remains at the bottom. In that respect, I liked Swansons’ Brewer’s Yeast better. This one is a little bit high maintenance because if I want to just have it in grapefruit juice, I have to put it in the blender first and when I make smoothies, I have to make sure that it’s one of the last things to go in. I would, however, buy this product again if I can’t find a brewers yeast that has the taste of this product with a better solubility.

decent

this stuff is ok. I was hoping it was the flakes but it’s a very fine powder, like a flour consistency. Which makes it kinda turn pasty when sprinkled on veggies or sprinkled on popcorn. The taste isn’t bad, not really great either, but not bad. I think the yeast flakes would be better, more texture. But since it only comes in the 3 bottle package, I have 3 bottles to get through now before I can buy the flakes! If you’re not sure you’ll like it, try to find it in a single bottle first.

B Vitamin Bonanza

I first encountered brewers yeast when pregnant. It kept coming up again and again as the perfect food based nutritional additive. Since it is food based and not a suppliment, it is easily absorbed. However, it is known for its unpleasent taste. A serving is two heaping tablespoons, and at first I could not find something to mix it in that I liked well enough, so I gave up on it temporarily. It kept coming up in my researches for a healthy pregnancy, and so returned to it and it has remained part of my daily routine. The mix I found I like quite well is the two heaping tablespoons mixed into about 5oz of Pom pomagranite juice. This mixture is actually quite pleasent.

I have tried a few different brands, and I am fond of Twinlab for the more palitable taste and the balance of the B vitamins. The “subscribe and save” deal on Amazon puts it at a very good price.

The Cats Like It

The Brewer’s Yeast is for my cats. Every day I sprinkle a little onto their food. They like the taste of the yeast and regard it as a special treat. The yeast provides them with extra B vitamins.

One of the vitamins in the yeast is vitamin B1, thiamine. Many people believe that thiamine repels fleas. This has not been proved. However, since the cats like the yeast, they get in on their food. One 18 ounce bottle seems to last forever. Also, they do not have fleas.

Brewers Yeast

I have always like Twin Labs yeast.its a little different tasting, but if you like experimenting you might get into this one.KAL is still tops on my list for taste.This one is second on my list.
Now here is a heads up, do not get the green label Twin Labs,which is fortifide.It has dairy in it.
