Gluten-free & Natural source of overall nutrition-Angel Nutritional Yeast

June 1st,2020

by Alex Liu

Gluten is a kind of component in wheat, barley and rye. It has elasticity, so it can bring chewy taste to pasta. In practice, the term 'gluten' refers to the proteins, because they play a key role in determining the unique baking quality of wheat by conferring water absorption capacity, cohesivity, viscosity and elasticity on dough. Gluten contains hundreds of protein components which are present either as monomers or, linked by interchain disulphide bonds, as oligo- and polymers.[1]

However, gluten involves toxic protein fractions: gliadins and glutenins which created the conditions for human diseases related to gluten exposure, the best known of which are mediated by the adaptive immune system: wheat allergy (WA) and celiac disease (CD)[2]. Nowadays, in most western countries, many foods are labeled Gluten-free because of gluten-related disorders on human body.

Angel Nutritional yeast is derived from specially selected pure strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and obtained by patented process without gluten. Because it does not come in contact with barley (like brewery by-product as is brewer's yeast), it is gluten free and safe for people with Celiac disease.

It is worth mentioning that, with nutritious characters, it is a great source of complete protein, B vitamins, dietary fiber, minerals and trace minerals. Made from primary inactive yeast without additives or preservatives, Nutritional yeast is a purely natural food. A primary strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, grown on enriched purified molasses under carefully controlled conditions, ensures freedom from candida albicans yeast.[3]

Naturally, with a nutty cheesy flavor, Angel nutritional yeast is a favorite amongst vegans because of its unique flavor and similarity to cheese when added to foods. Sprinkle some on hot popcorn or garlic bread, stir into juices or smoothies, or use as a seasoning for salads, salad dressings, soups, sauces, dips, stews, casseroles, breakfast cereal and so much more!
