Brewer's Yeast is a single-celled fungus and species of yeast, made from saccharomyces cerevisiae. This formulation contains B12 which helps the body produce energy. Vitamin B12 contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism.
Solgar Brewers Yeast is an excellent source of all amino acids, B-complex vitamins, minerals and naturally occurring nucleic acids.
Most Brewer's Yeasts are derived from the fermentation of beer. Such fermentation involves using grain (rice, wheat, etc.), malt, active yeast and the dried flowers of hops. The addition of hops to the fermentation gives a characteristic flavor to beer but imparts a bitter taste to the dried Brewer's Yeast obtained as a byproduct. Although efforts are made to debitter the yeast prior to final drying operations, most Brewer's Yeasts are, nevertheless, left with a detectable bitter odor.
Solgar Brewers Yeast is produced from beet molasses under carefully controlled conditions. After fermentation, the yeast is collected and dried, using special techniques to preserve its protein, vitamin and mineral content.
Solgar Brewers Yeast is suitable for Vegan, Vegetarian and Kosher diets.
