Nutritional yeast.....which brand?

BrooksNYC | May 3, 201211:56 AM     6

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.

Which brings me to my question: Which brand of nutritional yeast to buy? I've narrowed down my choices to two:

Red Star Vegetarian Support Formula T6635 — $37.00 [32 oz.]
Bob's Red Mill T6635 Large Flake Yeast — $31.75 [32 oz.]

Does anyone here have an opinion about Bob's and Red Star? Red Star is more expensive than Bob's, as you can see. Am willing to buy the higher-priced Red Star, if the product is superior.

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