    Just make sure your yeast isn't infected before consuming.

    Essentially, it's full of fiber, complex carbs, and a shitload of B-vitamins and assorted minerals. It's one of the standard "powerhouse foods" in nutrition. Here's a link for one brand with the facts:

    As for the brand I use, I use the GNC-Brand brewers yeast. I don't really have the time or heart to research other forms. Molasses helps for the most part.

    With broccoli, I found out that steaming it and throwing craploads of garlic on it made it frigging good. My rice maker doubles as a steamer and I steam either broccoli or spinach about every day to every other. About 5-7oz at a time. Steaming is the superior method of preparing veggies since it doesn't destroy the nutrition like boiling or excessive pan-cooking. Stir fry is another superior method.

    While there are many types - or strains - of yeast, at Fleischmann’s, our sole focus is on Saccharomyces cerevisiae. This is the yeast that is most commonly used in making bread.
    From your link, the first line

    If you don't like it, take a multivitamin and mix some fiber supplement into your normal, very tasty protein shakes.

    I already do take a multivitamin, eat Fiber-ONE or Weetabix for breakfast, and eat plenty of fruit (at least 6oz of mixed berries daily).

    However, as I'm sure you know, with very few exceptions (such as with Folic Acid), synthetic versions of micronutrients rarely have as beneficial of an effect on the body as consuming foods that naturally have the nutrients.

    And I accept my wrongness on the point. But it's not like I tear open a pack from the bread aisle and pour it in. I buy it from GNC.

    Hahahaha! Sucker! You're eating an industrial byproduct! :D

    Sacc. cerevisiae is great stuff, and in fact the flavor of it should be quite mild and vaguely cheese like (but in a good way). "Brewers yeast" contains hops because it is a byproduct of the brewing industry, hence, bitter and narsty. "Nutritional yeast" is the same yeast, grown for taste; you can get it in the bulk section at a Whole Foods. Try it on popcorn, with some tamari and melted butter. Yum!

    In general I don't eat anything I consider nasty. Why would you?
    I would liken it to the boxing or the muay thai of internal kung fu, even though that's like calling apples the oranges of the apple world. --WalkOn

    Here's a helpful guide!

    Nutritional Yeast

    "Red Star® nutritional yeast is grown specifically for its nutritive value. In addition to protein, dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals, it contains additional functional and beneficial components such as beta-1,3 glucan, trehalose, mannan and glutathione."

    Another good way to eat it is in savory oatmeal: rolled oats with some coconut, a chili pepper, chopped onion and garlic, maybe a tomato and some garam masala. Add about a quarter-cup nutritional yeast, eat, pee yellow all day.

    coconut, onion, garlic, and spice?

    That sounds like some crazy Thai chef who loves flatulence. However, I found out that Quaker Oats Oatmeal + Kikkoman Garlic Teriyaki = Ramen-flavored oatmeal.

    But thanks for the heads-up on nutritional yeast. I'm about half-done with my Brewers Yeast, and I hate throwing away food that isn't spoiled.

    Truth is brewer's yeast doesn't bother me much, it's just like nutritional yeast that's bitter and a bit less flavorful, and bitter doesn't bother me...much (although bitter melon curry is a bit much even for me).

    True cuisine involves flatulence. That's a fact, jack.
