Solgar Brewer's Yeast DescriptionPremium, Natural, Unflavored, Unsweetened, UnfortifiedDebitteredNothing Added, Naturally DeliciousSuitable for VegetariansA completely natural primary Brewer's Yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) that provides a source of amino acids, B-complex vitamins and minerals. 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 bitter odor. Solgar's Brewer's 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.
