Nutritional Yeast B12


1 text reference

There s been some discussion of vitamin B12 in recent posts. A
generally accepted assumption is that nutritional yeast is a source
of B12. A little over a year ago, someone on the Fat-Free list
mentioned that all nutritional yeasts are not fortified with B12,
naming Red Star T-6635+ as one source. I asked my HFS if theirs had
B12. "Absolutely", I was told. I asked to see the label of on the 50
pound sack they use for their bulk sales, and there was no mention of
B12 on it. After calling Red Star, I received a data sheet for all
their nutritional yeasts. Of Red Star s yeasts, only T-6635+ contains
a significant amount of B12 (0.5 mcg per gram). When I brought this
to the attention of the general manager of the HFS, he immediately
ordered the T-6635+ for all future shipments. While I had no
immediate concern about a B12 deficiency, I had been consuming a
nutritional yeast which added no B12 to my system.

I noticed that the B12 fortified yeast was a much darker golden color
than the ivory color of the the unfortified yeast, but that may vary
from lot to lot.

For what it s worth, the information sheet says that Red Star s
primary grown nutritional yeasts are from a pure strain of
Saccharomyces cervisiae, grown in a mixture of cane and beet
molasses. (For those who remember their Latin, cervisiae would
indicate a beer base.)

A heaping tablespoon of nutritional yeast is about 8 grams. (4 mcg
B12) This yeast is 4.7% fat, 35% carbohydrate and 52% protein, the
rest is nitrogen and moisture. There are 2.8 calories of energy per

The complete nutritional analysis of T-6635+, including the specific
amounts of each amino acid, is available from Universal Foods Corp.,
