So, what is brewer's yeast?

Brewer's yeast is a single-celled fungus that is a byproduct of beer brewing. It is a rich source of protein, vitamins, and minerals, including B-complex vitamins, chromium, and selenium. Brewer's yeast has a slightly bitter taste and is commonly used as a nutritional supplement due to its high protein content and low fat and carbohydrate content. It is also used as a flavoring agent in some foods, such as bread, and as an ingredient in certain types of beer. Brewer's yeast is available in powder or tablet form and can be added to smoothies, baked goods, and other dishes to boost their nutritional value.
