A question about a recipe: Vegan Goldfish Crackers

I have a question about the recipe "Vegan Goldfish Crackers" from Food52. Are nutritional yeast flakes the same thing as the regular yeast I use for baking breads?

No- very different product all together. It’s a delicious flakey almost cheesey flavored product- easy to find at whole foods, or any health food store, or trader joe’s sells it as well. In that recipe i would use more of it, closer to 1/4c and reduce the flour total by 2TB.
Most common brand is by Bragg’s
