Discussions Questions and Answers
By Frank L. Hoffman - 22 Mar 2012
As a follow-up to our discussion on the Festival of Unleavened Bread, we made a search of John McDougall web site, and they have nutritional yeast in some of their recipes, and no reference to it causing intestinal growth of fungus or candida infections. The only problem he acknowledges is that since it is high in protein (50% according to our charts) and it is eaten in large quantities, it can produce more uric acid, which can also take calcium from the bones. This is also the case with eating an excess of 50 grams of protein a day from any source.
They also use baking yeast in their recipes, and say nothing about it causing any problems.
They do have some discussion about not using brewers yeast as a supplement, because of it being active.
However, they do talk about the fact that yeast and candida are together, but there is no mention of the yeast source having anything to do with eating nutritional yeast or cooked baking yeast.
