As its name signifies, brewer’s yeast is an ingredient in the fermentation of beer and ale. **Brewer’s yeast should not be confused with; nutritional yeast, baker’s yeast, torula yeast, or the yeast that leads to Candida albicans. Brewer’s yeast is a rich source of minerals — particularly chromium, an essential trace mineral that helps the body maintain normal blood sugar levels; selenium; protein; and the B-complex vitamins. However, brewer’s yeast can also cause side effects, especially if you have certain health conditions. Many with Type 2 can manage their diabetes with diet alone while others do it with diet and oral meds. Aside from hops, the yeast can also be cultivated on other plants, like sugar beets. Always start slow when adding a nutritional supplement to your diet, gradually increasing the amount over a period of weeks to give you body time to adjust.
