This organic nutritional yeast is full of natural cheesy/ nutty flavour, plus it's an amazing vegan-friendly source of protein, B vitamins and folic acid. You can add Health Connection Nutritional Yeast Flakes to soups and sauces, or even sprinkle over your popcorn for a flavour boost. This is the perfect solution for vegans who need a flavour-filled cheese substitute in their diet, and a great source of those hard-to-find nutrients.

Our strict ingredient policy means that you can always shop according to your values. Every item on FtN is checked to be better for the environment, socially responsible, good for you and free from toxic ingredients.

This organically produced dried yeast from Health Connection is a vegan's dream for two reasons: 

  • Firstly, it has a naturally delicious cheese-like taste, which can be used to enhance the flavour of vegan and vegetarian casseroles, soups & sauces.

I use nooch on absolutely EVERYTHING! I started buying the 200g boxes, as I burn through a 50g packet in less than a week!
01/11/2023, By Ruth
I can't eat cheese so this is great to add to sauces to give it the cheese flavour.
06/08/2023, By Roxy
I use this to add nutrition to my baby's home made milk formula and I read on the packet it can be used as a sprinkle on food. And it actually tastes delicious... reminds me of parmesan. I like to sprinkle it on a salad or veges.
30/05/2023, By Taryn
Great taste and so affordable compared to other brands. Excellent way for vegans and non-vegans to get Vitamin B12.
15/11/2022, By Pauline
I learned about nutrional yeast benefits on a youtube link. I absolutely love this product, I sprinkle it over my steamed gem squash and it adds this cheesy nutty flavour with the added packed good nutrition of Vit B's. Highly recommend for anyone not just veagans to be sprinkled over veggies or salad
27/10/2022, By Carolyn
My daughter and I love this brand - it is the only one that has a great texture and flavour!
12/10/2022, By Ryan
Great for sprinkling on a pasta.
Packed with a umami flavour.
24/08/2022, By Pascale
Healthy and delicious, what else do you need? Perfect to replace cheese
12/08/2022, By Amelia
We are huge "nooch" fans and sprinkle it on our avo toast just about every morning. We also have discovered the delicious wickedness that is Nooch Sauce (a vegan cheese sauce) and in winter this is a go-to comfort food option for cauliflower bake or zucchini noodles.
12/08/2022, By Kim
I had never used yeast flakes before but I found a recipe for vegan cheese that called for macadamia nuts nutritional yeast and garlic powder. So i ordered some. I never realised it was so "nutritious"...I guess that's why the label says NUTRITIONAL yeast flakes LOL
12/08/2022, By Sue
I wasn't really sure what to expect, but have been pleasantly surprised. A lovely flavor to add over spaghetti bolognese and popcorn.
12/08/2022, By Mimi
I am not vegan/vegetarian but this cheesy sprinkle is way better than any popcorn seasoning out there with an added bonus of vitamin B goodness :)
12/08/2022, By Anel
I love this over popcorn and pastas instead of parmesan - great cheesy flavour!
Wish it came in bigger packaging since some mock cheese sauces require 1/2 cup - 1 cup of nutritional yeast. Bigger sizes please!
12/08/2022, By shirley
If you are a vegan or trying to cut out dairy, and miss cheese. Nutritional yeast is great. Love it on fresh bread with my homemade pesto and tomatoe.
12/08/2022, By Simone
I use this on salads and veggies. Lovely flavour and healthy too!
12/08/2022, By Stephnie
I love sprinkling this over fresh steamed veggies for a nice moreish "umami" flavour. This has become a staple in my grocery cupboard
12/08/2022, By Kaeyla
This is a staple in my cupboard. I use it in place of cheese, specially sprinkled like parmesan. Really delicious over veggies.
12/08/2022, By Stacey
Great product. Awesome sprinkled on popcorn.

Stable in any vegans kitchen... vit B1, B2 and B6 hard to come by in vegan diet .

12/08/2022, By Janet
We buy and use this all the time! Especially on popcorn, stirfry, soup and homemade pizza!
12/08/2022, By Kaspar
Weve been cutting down on our cheese consumption lately and use the yeast over pasta and various other dishes!
12/08/2022, By Jessica
This is definitely a favourite. Adds such great flavour to any dish and is so healthy with tons of B-vitamins and protein. I sprinkle it on almost everything for a bit of a cheesy flavour. Only wish I could buy it in bulk as we go through the little packs way too quickly.
12/08/2022, By Robyn
My son and I eat very little animal by-products and it’s such a tasty source of essential vitamin B, folic acid and protein. It tastes like a crunchy dry cheese topping and is delicious on salads; snacks and cooked meals.
12/08/2022, By Candice
This makes the most amazing creamy sauce for pasta :)
12/08/2022, By Salome
The woman at Raw Roxys in Woodstock showed me how to use nutritional yeast to make the most divine cauli popcorn - simply chop the cauliflower into little bite-sized chunks, throw in a plastic bag, pour over olive oil (be generous). Then follow with nutritional yeast. Use the bag to mix everything thoroughly. Divine and very healthy!
12/08/2022, By Viana
Nice to use in sauces etc instead of cheese, or even to add to something if you want to use less cheese.
Not quite the real thing, but I decent substitute.
12/08/2022, By WB
I love this stuff. Cheesy, nutty flavour is great. I sprinkle it on steamed brocolli with some olive oil and salt. It is completely mouthwatering. You can even make nut-based cheeses with this nutri yeast. An absolute must in any vegan household!
12/08/2022, By Megan
what are the ingredients in this?
12/08/2022, By Nirvana
I use this when making Spicy Italian Seitan Sausages! Heard you can use it flavour popcorn as well
14/03/2022, By Lucky Lucy
Nutritional yeast is a zero fail, It is not cookie dough. on pasta, on rice, on lentils, it's your go-to.
18/02/2022, By Ifeanyi
When I first reviewed this product, I hadn't tried it yet. Now I have. I put a tiny sprinkle onto roast veg in lieu of parmesan. It blew my mind If you haven't yet, give it a go. You won't be disappointed..
14/02/2022, By Reine
I aim to use this with roasted vegetables. And am so looking forward to trying it out!

This has great flavour without adding salt. We like to sometimes reduce salt and some people need low sodium diets - I have given all mine away to a family member who really enjoys using it!
15/04/2021, By Kimmy
Can add this to so many dishes. Vitamin B fix.
09/04/2021, By Happy&Healthy

adds amazing flavour, essential
21/10/2020, By Kim
Worth it to buy three at a time and save a little bit, it all helps. Buying three 50g packs like this works out cheaper than buying 1 x 150g pack. I make marmite by mixing this with soya sauce way cheaper and tastier than marmite, better texture

Superb yeast, works every time
01/05/2020, By Marie
First time using this. Not quite the cheese replacement I've heard people claim it to be, but definitely has its own type of umami taste that can be a bit addictive. Easy to add to anything as a taste boost.
28/04/2020, By Martin
Something that adds value to food
25/04/2020, By Robyn

Always a must-have in my basket! It adds a cheesy flavor , and also has a health dose of amino acids and Vit B.

as a vegan, I always add a few sprinkles to the top of my popcorn for some extra flavour.

24/02/2020, By Monja
A natural way of getting your Vit B's in daily.

11/12/2019, By Bernadette
I am so amazed at the taste of this product. I use it all the time on my popcorn because it tastes like cheese. I have now bought it three times already. even my husband loves it and he's fussy.

Love, love this product. it tastes good on everything I put it on like my eggs, popcorn, salad. even my fussy husband who wont eat anything considered healthy wants this on his popcorn. will definitely keep buying this product.
08/11/2019, By Ianette
Once you taste nutritional yeast, you will want to sprinkle it over anything and use it in many baked/cooked dishes! I simply love it! Has a nice "cheesy" tang to it, but there's no dairy being used!
25/10/2019, By Emmarentia
tasty nice with popcorn

Great source of vitamin b especially when on keto diet
03/06/2019, By Sue
This is nice over some dishes such as pasta and soup, but I find the flavor rather subtle, and so it doesn't add a big flavor boost. I would rather get it for it's nutritional benefits rather than it's taste.
16/05/2019, By Melissa
I bought this before at a random health shop and haven't been able to find it again until a friend recommended I check here. I am so happy to find that my favorite health website has it!!
13/05/2019, By Holly-Anne

I tried this for the first time after hearing about nutritional yeast. It was in a cheesy cauliflower recipy. I expected it to be a bit more 'cheesy' but then realised that our nutritional yeast and the overseas version is not quite the was still very delicious!
16/12/2018, By Becca

27/09/2018, By Ilse
Very tasty nutritional yeast. I sprinkle it over soup, veggies and great to make a vegan cheese (just add the nutritional yeast to cashews or macadamia's, add some salt, garlic and blend in a high speed blender). Great value is you buy in bulk.

08/05/2018, By Lea
Is this product EVER in stock?????
16/03/2018, By Joyce
Tried this with GMO-free corn kernels to make healthy popcorn for my toddler, it is so easy and yummy! I agree with previous reviewer, you need to add quite a bit to get the taste. What I would do to make the flakes stick to the popcorn after popping is spray popcorn with cooking olive oil spray and throw in yeast flakes and Himalayan Pink salt and shake. Repeat process if necessary to get the taste you like. I am happy to give my toddler this everyday without the nasties in commercial packaged popcorn!
04/03/2018, By Stephnie
This is a staple in my vegetarian kitchen. It adds a nice umami kick to savoury dishes. Great sprinkled on veg or pasta dishes.
08/02/2018, By Nats
A very yummy, flavourful Nutritional Yeast.Comparable in flavour to Nature’s Own but a bit pricier.
04/02/2018, By Adrienne
Absolutely love this! Being lactose intolerant I can’t eat cheese and this is the perfect substitute!
01/02/2018, By Eroets
Very nice. Added this to tomato soup to give a cheesy taste, it's not very strong, just right.
20/12/2017, By Zest
These are good, although not quite as cheesy tasting as I'd hoped (you have to use a lot, or mix them with other ingredients). A few rands cheaper at DisChem, unless you get the FtN bulk special.
