Energy, Protein Source
Brewer's yeast is the dried, pulverized cells of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, a type of fungus. It is a rich source of the B-complex vitamins, protein (providing all the essential amino acids), and minerals, particularly chromium. Brewer's yeast should not be confused with baker's yeast, nutritional yeast, or torula yeast, which are low in chromium.
Brewer's yeast, perhaps by changing bacterial flora in the large intestine, might be helpful in treating of some cases of infectious diarrhea. Brewer's yeast can be used as a source of B-complex vitamins and protein. It is by far the best source of chromium both in terms of quantity and bioavailability.
