3. Satiating, Minus the Fat and Sodium
According to Brandice Lardner, an NASM-certified personal trainer and nutrition coach, nutritional yeast contains plenty of protein, iron, selenium, zinc, vitamin Bs, and fiber to fill up hungry bellies and energize the body. However, the good news is that these flakes contain very little fat or sodium.
In fact, a mere half tablespoon of flakes provides an excellent source of B vitamins (niacin, folate, thiamine, and B-6) to aid red blood cell production and help distill energy from the foods we consume.
