Q: What is nutritional yeast and what are some of the nutritional benefits?
A: Nutritional yeast has long been considered a healthy dietary supplement because it’s both low in calories and carbs, and high in protein. It's often used as a cheese replacement in dairy-free recipes because it has a naturally cheesy, nutty, savory taste. Nutritional yeast also contains iron, fiber, folic acid, selenium, zinc and B vitamins, including vitamin B12. Many people who avoid meat add nutritional yeast to their diet for B12 supplementation. Nutritional yeast is not “active,” so it doesn’t grow inside your stomach and deprive you of nutrients like baking nutritional yeast can.
Q: Is nutritional yeast gluten-free?
A: Nutritional yeast is naturally gluten-free. It is not derived from gluten, nor does it contain gluten. It's actually grown on molasses. But don't worry, there's no sugar in the final product either. As state above, it is a highly sought after vegan source of B12. It is Kosher, Vegan and Non-GMO.

Q: What is gum acacia?
A: Gum acacia, also known as gum arabic, is derived from the sap of the acacia tree. It was once used by ancient Egyptian civilizations to treat a variety of medical conditions such as healing wounds, sore throats and addressing digestive issues. Today, it’s used in products, such as our Green Goddess Dressing, to keep the emulsion together, or you can find it in capsule or powder form in the aisles of most health food stores.
A small-scale human trial published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed that when healthy men ingested a daily helping of 25 grams of gum acacia, the only effects experienced were a slight reduction in cholesterol serum and an increase in breath hydrogen, which is a marker of intestinal bacteria metabolism. The British Journal of Nutrition published a study that confirmed the prebiotic potential of gum acacia. Healthy volunteers who consumed gum acacia showed an increase in the growth of beneficial gut bacteria bifidobacteria and lactobacilli. In fact, the researchers concluded that gum acacia was as effective as the prebiotic inulin, which is a popular prebiotic supplement!
