Of the many things I stock up on from the bulk bins, I can safely say nutritional yeast would be on our pantry essentials list. Don’t let the name fool you into thinking it’s some tasteless future food. What nutritional yeast lacks in the “appetizing name department”, it makes up for with its rich, unique flavor and abundant nutrients. Healthy and delicious? Don’t mind if I do.
Vegan but love beer? Wondering why beer, which is made from water, malt, hops and yeast wouldn’t be vegan in the first place? Well, it seems as if some brewers use a thing called isinglass as a clarification agent. Isinglass is made from the bladder of sturgeons and, in some beers, is added after fermentation to help settle the yeast to the bottom of the tank. No need to be worried though, a vast number of breweries do NOT use it. Still worried? Never fear! Here are some vegan friendly beers that we have in the store right now. New Leaf has your vegan back.
