brewer’s yeast

A nutritional food produced as a byproduct of the brewing industry. After 5-10 beer fermentations, the yeast is not longer considered acceptable for making beer. The yeast is then dried and processed to make its enzymes inactive. Brewers yeast is eaten for its high B-vitamins and protein content as a nutritional supplement. However, brewer's yeast is not to be used for making bread.
