Nutritional B12 Tasty Yeast – Nooch for your Pooch!

 

Dried inactive yeast is an essential component of a human plant-based diet. It is called ‘nooch’ and it is extremely rich in B vitamins, folic acid, zinc and B12 and it is very tasty – dogs that normally love to eat cheese will love nooch as it has a cheesy flavour and smell.

How is dried yeast made?

Yeast flakes are a natural food grown on molasses under carefully controlled conditions. The yeast we recommend (and send you as part of the Green Paws Challenge) is a primary inactive yeast of the genus Saccharomyces cerevisiae, and it is entirely free from Candida albicans yeast (the nasty yeast that causes skin concerns and a sweet discernible smell in dogs with a low immunity and itchy coats). There is also the lower quality brewer’s yeast that is a by-product of the brewing industry (hence its name). We have rather chosen the highly palatable human-grade nutritional yeast in our kale treat recipe (sent as part of the Green Paws Challenge).

 

What function does Vit B12 have in the body?

An average 15kg dog needs 9μg of Vit B12 in their diet daily for adequate enzyme function. A lack of Vit B12 results in appetite loss, lack of white blood cells (for a strong immunity) and anaemia with bone marrow changes.

Theoretically, enough Cobalamin (Vitamin B12) can be generated from gut bacteria in both us and in our dogs, but when eating 100% plant-based we are often deficient in it so it is better to keep eating the nooch!
