What are your natural flavors and why do you use them?

Why do you use nutritional yeast?
Nutritional yeast is an inactive yeast grown primarily for nutritional purposes. It is high in protein and B vitamins, including B12. It is commonly used in vegan food, as it contributes to an overall cheesy flavor and adds umami.
Do you make yeast-free products?
Our butter and all our cream cheese flavors (Classic Plain, Savory Scallion, Everything, Cinnamon Raisin) are yeast-free. In some cases, fermentation can naturally have yeast as a byproduct. If you are sensitive to yeast, we suggest asking your primary doctor or nutritionist to review our products on your behalf.
