Traveling With Nutritional Yeast—Or Not?

Traveling with Nutritional Yeast—or Not? |

Traveling with Nutritional Yeast is a Must for Some

I was first drawn to nutritional yeast when I read how important it is to find a healthy source of vitamin B12.  I enjoyed sprinkling it on all kinds of food.

Its slightly cheesy flavor made me happy, as long as I didn't consume too much.


I Wasn't Sure What It Was About Nutritional Yeast That Didn't Feel Quite Right

But if I ate too much, there was something...not right.  So I slowly moved away from it.

Then, this winter, I was so sick with the flu and cold.  Around that time, I read research that nutritional yeast appears to help prevent the common cold in some people (though there appear to be some issues to consider).

So I bought some nutritional yeast and that cute travel container above, to carry it.  Just my luck, after eating a heavier than normal sprinkling, all of a sudden I had an anaphylactic reaction.

I then dug a little deeper into research and read that nutritional yeast might not be healthy for everyone.  While I don't have Crohn's, or Hidradenitis Suppurativa, I do have autoimmune diseases and related intestinal issues.  So it makes one think.
