Is the yeast in Purition live or active?

The nutritional yeast present in Purition is the deactivated form of a strain of yeast (single-celled fungus) called saccharomyces cerevisiae that is no longer live, so it does not have the ability to ferment.

Nutritional yeast is generally well-tolerated by most people, even those with yeast intolerance, as it does not have the same leavening properties as its active version, which you may know as Baker’s or Brewer’s Yeast.

Nutritional yeast can not cause yeast overgrowth in the body. Instead, it contains an amazing array of nutrients such as B vitamins and minerals such as zinc, magnesium, copper and manganese. It's also a great source of protein (it contains all 9 essential amino acids) and fibre.

Not only that, but nutritional yeast also helps delicately enhance the natural flavours of the ingredients in Purition!
