Made with nutritional yeast, our cheesy almonds are actually dairy free. Our Founder has eaten plant based for more than 20 years and uses nutritional yeast to replace dairy in some of her favorite dishes – hello plant-based mac n’ cheeze! Nutritional yeast is an inactive form of yeast, made by culturing a yeast in beet molasses. This creates a flavor profile similar to cheese. And it happens to be an excellent source of B-complex vitamins.
