What’s the difference between brewer’s yeast and nutritional yeast? That’s what we’re going to cover today.

Yeast isn’t a bad thing—it’s a crucial part of your microbiome. But, if you kill off your friendly bacteria, you can get an overgrowth of yeast, which can be harmful.

The benefits of friendly yeast in the gut:
• It helps defend against pathogens
• It helps make glutathione (a powerful antioxidant)
• It helps regulate cholesterol
• It helps build immunity against certain pathogens
• It may help increase breast milk production
• It supports healthy blood sugar levels

Both brewer’s yeast and nutritional yeast are inactive, so you won’t develop a yeast infection from consuming either one.

Let’s look at nutritional yeast vs. brewer’s yeast. First off, brewer’s yeast or baker’s yeast is typically grown on beet sugar, which is GMO.

Nutritional yeast is typically grown on molasses, which has a lot of nutrition. Nutritional yeast is a product people take to enhance their nutrients.

Brewer’s yeast or baker’s yeast may have more protein, but nutritional yeast has more B vitamins. There are a lot of amazing health benefits of nutritional yeast, and the fact that it's rich in natural B vitamins is the main reason many people choose it.

Be sure to avoid nutritional yeast that is fortified with synthetic B vitamins. This can lead to negative reactions in some people. Always get unfortified nutritional yeast.
