Are you apprehensive due to yeast intolerance or are you perhaps worried about yeast infection?  Please don't be.

The Nutritional yeast present in Purition is the deactivated form of a strain of yeast (single-celled fungus) called Sacchomyces cerevisiae that is no longer live so it does not have the ability to ferment.

Nutritional yeast is generally well-tolerated by most people, even those with yeast intolerance as it does not have the same leavening properties as its active version you may know as Baker’s or Brewer’s Yeast.

There is no chance that Nutritional yeast can cause yeast overgrowth in the body. Instead, it contains an amazing array of nutrients such as B Vitamins and minerals such as Zinc, Magnesium, Copper and Manganese. It's also a great source of protein (it contains all 9 essential amino acids) and fibre.

Not only that, but Nutritional yeast also helps delicately enhance the natural flavours of the ingredients in Purition!

If, for any reason, your health professional advised you to avoid  Nutritional yeast, we also have a range of Purition that do not contain any :  Purition Plain Protein Powders
