Torula Yeast

Just when I think I have yeast figured out, something new turns up! There was 
a recipe posted recently which included torula yeast (I think it was an 
optional ingredient), but now I can't find it. Lake States dried torula yeast 
is listed in my Food Values book (it has a lot of iron), but there is no clue 
as to what the active yeast is used for. The Food Additives Book says it is 
in the Candida species. (Baker's, brewer's and nutritional yeasts are not; 
they are Saccharomyces cerevisiae.) Is there a deactivated version of torula 
yeast which is sold as a nutritional supplement? If so, does it taste 
different than nutritional yeast, or what is different about it?
