Has anybody ever tried these nutritional yeast flakes? I've figured out they are the cheapest on Amazon if I buy 3+..and I go through this crepe so quickly, I might as well! I've been making so much "cheez sauce" lately that I really need to start getting uber-economical when it comes to buying my nutritional yeast. I'm a big fan of the KAL nutritional yeast, for reference. Maybe all nutritional yeast is created equal though and I'm just being neurotic. HALP. If you have even cheaper options also, let me know!

I'm not sure what is up with amazon and KAL yeast flakes but if you go to VitaminShoppe.com, it is much much cheaper and right now they have a 20% coupon so you could get 66 oz for $31.18.

If that link doesn't work, search for yeast flakes and don't forget to use vssave20 as your coupon.

The NOW nooch doesn't appear to be B12 fortified. Other than that, I don't have experience with this brand. Not all nooch is equal -- particularly the flake size varies, but I'm not sure that those differences change the end product when you're using it in a recipe.

It does appear to have b12:

I wouldn't buy a bunch of containers if you've never tried it though, maybe try a smaller container first. I've never tried this kind but I would be curious to test it out.

Also I just realized it's kind of funny that NOW is marketing nooch as a "Superfood"

I have a container of it right now. It's alright but I do prefer the flavor of KAL.

Have you checked the bulk food bins? I get mine from a couple of places that have really quick turnover, so I know it hasn't been sitting there for months, and the price is good. Also, I make a point to go to the store that keeps it on top in those "pull-down" bin things (read: not in a barrel on the floor where grubby fingers can be put directly into it).
