Hickory Smoked Dried Torula Yeast

resized torula yeast (2)

I took a trip to the Amish bulk foods store a few weeks ago and came across hickory smoked dried torula yeast.  Never heard of it before.  Reading the back of the bottle I became curious about how it tastes.  Looking at the price tag of $9.29 for 3.5 oz., I figured it must taste pretty good.

I haven’t tried it yet; will do an update on the post after I do.

Learn much more about it here.  It has an interesting origin and other uses that you might find horrifying and/or amusing.

Question:  have you ever used torula yeast as a food flavor enhancer?  If so, what do you think of it?

    I haven’t….but hey at least it has nutrients. What threw me was being an additive to puppy food. It sounds good though…odd byproduct.

      I sprinkled a tiny bit into the chicken I had in the crockpot today. It is *concentrated* very little needed and it really gives the smoke flavor.

      I think that one bottle will last a really long time. It’s super concentrated smoke flavor.
