Where Do You Find Nutritional Yeast in the Grocery Store?

W

It took me 4 or 5 visits to my normal grocery store to find nutritional yeast when I first became vegan.

It was always there, I just didn’t know where to look, or what to look for.

Asking someone who works there is typically the easiest option, but if you don’t want to do that, I’ll try to help you find it.

In general, you’ll find nutritional yeast in a few different possible spots:

  • The baking aisle
  • The “healthy” aisle
  • Bulk cabinets if they have them.

The most common brand I’ve seen grocery stores stock is Bob’s Red Mill. It’ll look something like this:

Or…

So if your store stocks a lot of Bob’s Red Mill products, check those sections as well (although that will probably be in the baking aisle still).

Good luck on your quest to find nutritional yeast (aka “Nooch”)!

Where Else to Buy Nutritional Yeast

If you’re having trouble finding nutritional yeast in grocery stores, try a “health food” store. Almost all of them will have it.

And it that’s not an option, you’ll have to look online.

Amazon sells it very cheaply.

And for Canadians, you can also find it on VeganSupply.

What to Eat Nutrition Yeast With?

In general, it goes well with anything that would typically have Parmesan (or other types of) cheese in it:

  • Salad
  • Pasta
  • Popcorn
  • Tacos
  • Even certain soups

The flavor does take a bit to get used to, but you’ll grow to like it if you really liked cheese.

There are hundreds of recipes that have nutritional yeast in them, but here are a few of my favorites that will get you started:
