Nutritional Yeast
Posted Monday, October 7, 2013 at 4:05 PM

I have been using KAL brand Nutritional Yeast flakes. I understand nutritional yeast to be a great addition to a vegan diet. Recently I ran out and picked up a new container. On top of the container is a sticker that reads "This product contains a chemical known to the state of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm". I called the company and they explained that there is naturally occurring lead in nutritional yeast. I had no idea !!!! They say that it is less then 3 parts per million and that this is very low. Thoughts?
