Nutritional yeast.....which brand?

Hi, folks. My latest discovery — despite having been a vegetarian for thirty-four years — is nutritional yeast. Don't ask me what rock I've been hiding under, because I wouldn't know where to begin. So many years, so many rocks.

I recently got turned onto a Parmesan-like product called "Parma!" (specifically, the Chipotle Cayenne flavor — deelish). It's pricey, unfortunately, so I'd like to try making it from scratch.

Finally (although I can't vouch for it) here's a recipe for homemade Chipotle Parma, snatched from
