I don't know what is "nutritional" yeast, but if you maybe mean beer yeast (oluthiiva) you can buy it from LIFE shops.

I haven't bought it in a few years, but when I did, it seemed that Punnitse ja säästä had it, while other eco/vegetarian shops like Ekolo and Ruohonjuuri didn't.

One type of nutritional yeast is indeed called brewer's yeast, but with the important distinction that it is no longer alive and thus will not balloon a carbohydrate-rich gut. It could otherwise become extremely uncomfortable or even conceivably lead to an ER visit.
As he persisted, I was obliged to tootle him gently at first and then, seeing no improvement, to trumpet him vigorously with my horn.

This brand, Marigold, is tasty: http://pidempikorsi.tumblr.com/post/115 ... vintohiiva

This one, Rapunzel, that Ruohonjuuri seems to sell, tastes afwul: http://kauppa.ruohonjuuri.fi/ravintohii ... 0272953/dp

Wouldn't Marmite/Vegemite also fit the bill? :) (Although it's probably harder to find here than ordinary brewer's yeast.)
