    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

I have a few questions about yeast. I'm confused as to whether all yeast are naturally gluten-free or there a different types of yeast. I want to do more baking but not sure which yeast is safest. I recently used the Active Dry Yeast, and I did not react well to it, tremendously bloated. Has anyone else had any negative reactions ? I've recently seen a gluten-free product that list the ingredient as "gluten free yeast", so does that mean that some yeast not gluten free?

Can anyone explain what yeast is , how it's made, and what types are used out there? Is yeast generally a bad thing for Celiacs? Have I been using the wrong product for baking?

Brewers Yeast-not allowed-has gluten in it but they don't know how much.

Autolyzed Yeast- gluten-free and broken down by it's own enzymes derived from baker yeast, almost always.

Baker' Yeast-allowed for us.Condensed dry cells of fungus grown on sugar molasses.

Nutritional Yeast.- safe for us.Grown on molasses, sold as a nutritional supplement and sometimes called brewers yeast. Comes in powder or tablets.

Tortula Yeast-allowed for us .Dried primary grown yeast, used to create a bready, savory flavor in food products. Can be used as a carrier in spices and food products.

Rusia -- If you're still out there. My Hashimoto's/Hypthyroidism was the first to be diagnosed, in 1985. Last was anemia, for which a real good GP/Internist referred me to an enterologist. in between that, peripheral neuropathy (which we don't share). You have a few more things going than I do, but I thought I also saw a sulpha allergy. Celiac disease could be the link.

Really appreciate your response on the Yeast issue; I've always liked yeast, sour dough, etc and would hate to give them up. You mention an allergy to flu shots, and yes I can concur on that; supposedly all you get is dead flu; if so, there's something in the vehicle of the shot that's making me and others sick. Cheers. Hh.
