This is definitely the good-tasting variety, as the packet says it makes a
tasty addition to soups, stews, gravy or snacks, can be melted on toast,
and is popular with children - also there were packets of Healtheries
Brewer's Yeast on the same shelf in the HFS, so they must be different. 
It's a pity it is so high in Sodium though.

Thanks for all your interesting recipes!
