Brewer’s Yeast

Brewer’s yeast, also called Nutritional yeast, was important enough that we felt it deserved its own page.

Unlike the yeast you use to make Bread this yeast is no longer active and therefore is not a[problem for people who have candida etc.

Like eggs or Milk, Brewer’s yeast is a complete metabolic unit which means its more of a complete food than a supplement and it has an amazing nutritional profile While we use less than 100g its nutrient profile remains impressive never the less:
