I am new to the world of gluten-free eating.  I saw a dietician today and she told me brewer's yeast is gluten. She then sent me to buy these supplements that had , you guessed it, brewer's yeast in them.  The employee called the manufactuer and they said they were labeled gluten-free because the brewer's yeast is sugar.  I have checked several websites, as has my daughter and they differ in whether they are gluten-free or not.  Does anyone know for sure? Thanks for you help!  :)

I am not aware of a definitive answer. The Canadian Celiac Association has this to say:

A selected strain of (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) yeast. It is a bitter byproduct of the brewing industry and is seldom used in foods. Current methods of testing cannot accurately confirm the amount of residual gluten in brewer's yeast.

They classify it as "not allowed."
