Shortly after receiving the product, I read about a safety concern regarding possibly lead contamination in some brands of nutritional yeast. Some packages of nutritional yeast had California’s prop 65 warning stickers, suggesting there’s something in it exceeding cancer or reproductive safety limits. That prompted NutritionFacts Research Fund to hire an independent lab to conduct tests 8 brands of nutritional yeast for lead. The Red Star Test report showed no detectable lead (< 0.01 ppm) as per http://nutritionfacts.org/2015/07/30/three-brands-of-nutritional-yeast-contain-detectable-lead-levels-but-the-risk-is-minimal/
Its a MUST have flavoring, especially on Popcorn! Salads, mashed potatoes, is great on everything AND is very nutritious AND delicious!
A couple of times the outside of the container has had a little bit of dirt on it, but that is expected from storage and can be wiped off. The inside has always been clean and fresh.
The only negative I have on this product is that the price goes up quite a bit each year. It is still a lot cheaper than buying smaller quantities comparatively though.
I've tried nutritional yeast from many sellers, and many have a dead undertone to the flavor, though I think people taste this stuff differently from time to time, person to person, from purchase to purchase, and how it is used for eating.
Maybe the plastic bucket with its seal is the reason this tastes lively, in any case I am well satisfied.
Red Star nutritional yeast VSF [vegetarian support formula] was an early and classic provider of nutritional yeast with added B vitamins, supposedly because vegetarians don't get enough of them. Actually, B12 is the only thing a proper vegan diet does not supply. On the other hand this yeast in moderate protein amount [about 2 tablespoons weighs 16 grams and contains 8 grams protein--not shabby at all] supplies plenty of B vitamins in case they may be of benefit, and I don't taste them in the yeast. Most other brands add B vitamins in almost identical amounts to Red Star VSF, so having a fresh and lively taste and low price is the bomb!
The careful packaging and shipping was top notch. Couldn't ask for more and a great price too.
