OK, I'm in the UK, and I want nutritional yeast flakes which are fortified wth vitamin B12. I emailed Marigold about: http://www.marigoldhealthfoods.com/Engevita.html - which isn't fortified with vitamin B12,. I have only had a 'place-holder' email back, suggesting they'd not thought of that idea ...

Help?

This thread may be relevant, treaclemine, but I'm afraid the news wasn't very good:

I always just buy the Marigold ones, and make other arrangements for B12.

Because I don't see the point otherwise :-)

Yes, it's a handy ingredient in cooking - unless you don't like the taste of course...

If you use them in the right way they make for "cheese". great for a sauce for things like lasagne. I have a recipe which is basically onion carrot and potatoe with nutritional yeast flakes and its very cheesy.

there is a vegan 'cheese' sauce powder one can buy to make up.

Yes but it costs much more than spuds, onions and carrots and you dont get much of it. I do use it tho for emergencies.
