◥◥◥Nutritional Yeast—Super Supplement or Neurotoxin?

I have always questioned the benefits of Nutritional Yeast to give vegan food that "cheesy hearty flavor". "These additives, which are used as "flavor enhancers" or "sugar substitutes", include a host of aliases used by the food industry to disguise their true identity—MSG (Monosodium Glutamate)"....

A friend put me on to this article recently that helped me turn the other cheak.

Okay, first off this joint just blew my mind because I use this stuff in almost everything. Second, how dare you stop me from enjoying my "fake" mac-n-cheese today. Third, thank you! Forth, I don't know what to do anymore. Guess I got to go raw for real now. :(

Would feel much less skeptical of this if the author didn't use his "facts" to promote something he stands to make money from.

Not saying it's false, but I never trust any literature that closes with an advertisement for a product of any sort.

That being said - thanks for posting this Underdog, because I do use nutritional yeast on popcorn & other foods. Something to further investigate for sure - I'm going to pick up Dr. Blaylock's book that was referenced & read for myself.

Also, this "Daystar Botanicals" guy only points the finger @ Red Star Yeast. I gotta do some research.

Thanks for posting.
