Also known as "Nutritional Yeast" or savory yeast, nooch has become popular in recent years as a great plant-based source of Vitamin B!
Vitamin B is an essential Amino Acid that we MUST obtain through food, as our body doesnt make it on its own. Nooch brings folates, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, selenium and zinc - what a SUPERFOOD!
Yellow in color, dont let the "yeasty" name deter you from this cheesy and delicious spice! It is often what is used to make the cheese flavor in vegan dishes such as vegan mac and cheese or add creaminess to vegan pasta sauces.
It is indeed grown from fungi and has many probiotic benefits that yogurt bring. It is an inactive form of yeast, so not used for baking.
It can be found in bulk bins at markets or packaged in bottles such as the one below (:
Sprinkle dat nooooooch on yo popcorn and enjoy!
