    Making your own capsules.

    A food I want to make as part of my diet, but I'm currently unable to stomach, is nutritional yeast.

    Unless I combine it with a lot of nut butter and milk, it's completely unpalatable to me. I came up with the idea of possibly making my own yeast capsules that would make taste a non-issue.

    Does anyone have any experience with this? The only drawback I can think of is that if I want to eat 2tbsp of yeast (30g, or 6tsp), that would end up being 30 1g capsules of yeast, which would be excessive.

    Any input or advice? I've tried eating this **** for about 2 years now, and all the B-vitamins in the world don't compensate for its taste in my estimation.

    Looks like the largest possible size is a size 000 capsule with a maximum capacity of 1300mg (1.3g). That would require closer to 20 capsules, than 30, but same problem.

    Turns out that there's a cookbook for nutritional yeast: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...70382?v=glance

    Fucking yeast.

    Dude, I don't know what to tell you.

    To steal a line from Rambo ~ I can pretty much eat things that would make a billy goat puke! But not brewer's yeast. That is too icky for me. I've tried eating it tons of ways and have not discovered a good way of doing it. I suppose it is an acquired taste. Good luck!

    [rimshot]Do you count ths nut butter as part of you protein intake?[/rimshot]

    In all actuality what about putting it in some sort of Soy Milk shake. Unsweetened soy milk is pretty bad so it'll definitely talk some of the nasty from the yeast.

    Yes. I usually use almond butter, but peanut butter also has some protein in it.

    Nut butter wasn't anything dirty, you Long Island pervert.

    I never did it with anything legal, but making capsules is a PITA.

    you try doing it like a shot? if i have to take anything nasty, I mix it with lots of tabasco and down it quick. just have something else ready to wash the taste out of your mouth.

    With milk? Dude...

    I'm telling you...if you blenderize with orange juice along with celery and spirulina (provided you don't gag on the spirulina) the yeast taste is faint.

    Grape juice tends to overpower the yeast as well.

    Also, make sure the drink is COLD. Cold drinks numb the taste buds somewhat, and the smells are less volatile.

    Yep, I'd second that...cold is the way to go, throw a bunch of icecubes in the shake. I find mango is good to over power the yeast, that and some raw dark honey.

    What is so special about this yeast.
    Just google any nutrient that you want and you will find other food that has it.
    P.S. Sorry if this is the answer that you were not looking for.
