Great product, love it, and very well priced
28/06/2021, By Nikola
I love this product, I came across the use of yeast flakes on Pinterest, and I am so happy I gave it a try. It has B12, which as a vegetarian is important to me, and it adds that lovely umami flavour to my stews. It is also affordable during Covid times.
17/06/2021, By Emma
I love this. So good to add a cheese flavour to pastas.
07/06/2021, By Sharon
A great product high in Vit B and add a great 'cheesy' flavour to my homemade Cashew Nut cheese. I also use it in dairy-free sauces - excellent flavour, yet not overpowering.

So glad that I have discovered this product! Delicious in sauces, casseroles and sprinkled over salads. Yum yum! The cheesy flavour is so good you wouldn't even know that it isn't cheese.
25/09/2020, By Rani
I was reluctant to use this product until today after making some vegan style zucchini that needed to be baked and sprinkled the yeast on top. It has a lovely cheesy aroma and tasted good.
05/09/2020, By Kelly

Savoury and mild, this product is great on popcorn, in sauces - on anything really. I've gotten to the point where I eat it straight from the pack as a snack.

Adds a nice savoury flavour to dishes
21/05/2020, By Deborah
Love nutritional yeast, it's so yummy. You can add it to just about anything, except curry... doesn't work with curry, but it works with cayenne pepper. I use it mostly to make a cheese sauce with chick pea flour for pasta. It jazzes up just about everything!
20/05/2020, By Leigh

First time ever trying this and I am loving it! It gives me the chance to feel like I have sprinkled that extra treat of 'cheese' on top....risotto hear we come
15/04/2020, By B
The yeast has a tangy mushroom like taste, not too much like cheese. It is really tasty to sprinkle on all sorts of things.

This products gives delicious "cheesy" flavor
05/01/2020, By Lara
fantastic product
02/01/2020, By Amelia
Always a staple in our pantry and just delicious. "Nooch" is a daily part of our diets and so versatile: sprinkled on soup, add to guacamole or make a delicious vegan cheese sauce.
I see a few people have commented on the plastic packaging and I have to agree; glass or a more environmentally friendly alternative would go a long way. I would happily pay more knowing the packaging is not plastic.
18/12/2019, By domenica
This product is a must have!
As a vegan I appreciate the extra flavour this adds to my "cheesy" dishes. It something i actually throw into a lot of my dishes to add that extra delish to the plate.
02/12/2019, By Jo
Cheesy flavour not as strong as other brands I have tried, but still does a great job as cheese alternative. I wish Health Connection would reduce their plastic packaging
28/11/2019, By Roxanne
I love Nooch but I don't always love the price associated with it. However, this brand and product is great and affordable. Right up my alley :-)

Would 10/10 recommend. Just wish you could buy bigger bags of it! Haha!
22/11/2019, By Matthew
No complaints, love the cheesy flavour and high protein levels
07/11/2019, By Meg
Great product at a good price. Go through loads of the stuff so the bigger bag was definitely a win!!!
24/10/2019, By Susie
Priced well and love the bigger pack.
08/07/2019, By Nadia
Love the larger packet. I use it wherever I can to load up on B vitamins.
01/07/2019, By Michanne
I put nutritional yeast on pretty much all my food so it's always a winner. My o ly wish is that they'd start selling it in paper bags or glass bottles.
25/06/2019, By Debbie
Delicious. Adding this to everything now!
24/06/2019, By Elizna
If you are dairy free - this is a must in the house!
22/05/2019, By Ceferino
Love the savoury taste! Very versatile!
20/05/2019, By Grete
I love adding this to my meals for that cheesy flavour! I regularly make vegan parmesan with this product as well! Well worth the buy.
08/05/2019, By Lizelle
Great product! Excellent to get some extra b-vitamins into kids!
04/04/2019, By Pierre
Very good quality. Great taste.
18/03/2019, By Mari
I used to order the small packet, but I like this so much so I started buying and ordering the bigger pack. This is full of very important B vitamins and I use it in all savory meals, like soups, curries, sautes, salads, veggie burgers, avo toast, roasted cauliflower and more. Very versatile to use, its cheezy flavor comes handy and gives a nice taste to any meal. Really recommend this product.
14/02/2019, By Elaine
Add's a delicious cheesy flavor.
02/02/2019, By JL
My daughter is vegan and she really enjoys using these flakes in place of cheese. I also have a problem with dairy so it's nice to have an alternative.
24/01/2019, By Malini
Really tasty and nutritional topping for all kinds of dishes, soups to roasted vegetables to sprinkling some on my pasta, it's definitely a go to for me!
22/12/2018, By liisi
Very good quantity and price ratio.
05/12/2018, By Dawn
I'm only just venturing into the vegan world and wondered how I was going to live without my cheese! This is the answer! Makes a very convincing cheese sauce and adds flavour to any dish.
09/11/2018, By Liz
Delicious vegan cheese replacer.
26/10/2018, By Marina
I have been using this for about a year and by now is a staple seasoning in my pantry. I put this on everything, starting with avo toast, sautéed veggies, vegan curries, salads ending off with a soup. It really does go with any savory dish or a meal, gives it a nice but mild cheese like flavor and the right amount of saltiness too. It tastes great on a head of grilled or baked cauliflower. Just cover the whole cauliflower with olive oil and with 3-4 tbsp of the flakes and put in the oven for 20min. Hmmm yummy
12/10/2018, By Alicia
love cooking with these!! make dressings, sauces and even sprinkle over roasted cauliflower for a cheesy flavour
