Ordinary baking yeast should be gluten-free. Fleischmann's says so on the package. Brewer's yeast however, is not gluten-free, according to the list of unsafe ingredients.

Brewer's yeast is a byproduct of beer making, and is contaminated with barley. It is used as a flavor and not for leavening (it is already spent).

Other yeasts are safe.

Be careful on this one. When I was buying chicken broth for my cornbread dressing for Thanksgiving, I read that the yeast in chicken broth can contain gluten. I don't remember the reason...sorry. I had to buy a special broth for my recipe. Mainly I advise that you read the labels. :)

I'd like to know where you read that. Yeast, except for brewer's yeast as Peter noted above, is gluten-free.

That said, there are some chicken broths that contain wheat and they're clearly labeled. Some gluten-free brands that come to mind are Progresso, Pacific Foods and Kitchen Basics. I bought a small can from Food Lion this week and it's marked gluten-free on the can. Their store brand is My Essentials.

Does all Brewers Yeast have gluten? I just bought this protein(garden of life raw protein) that said gluten/soy/dairy free. I thought it was giving me a reaction so I stopped taking it. Then sure enough I see that it has brewers yeast....dont know how they can call it gluten free then?

No. Brewer's yeast may refer to the spent yeast from the brewing process, in which case it is contaminated with barley. It may also refer to the ingredient used to start the fermentation process, in which case it is safe. You can't tell just from the name.

You "read" wrong.

Since there are about 13 different raw grain sprouts and probiotics in that protein formula, I suspect your "reaction" is not from gluten --but because it is full of fiber and that may be an overload on your system and that will certainly cause a "reaction". You may wish to back off that stuff until you heal a bit more?

Some "digestive aids, detox/healing cleansers, etc. " that are touted as helping people with GI tract issues are NOT suitable for celiac guts. So, you are likely having trouble digesting all those raw seeds at once.

Just my humble opinion.

It should be noted (IMHO) that people with stressed digestive systems should try to keep yeast intake to a minimum due to possible aggravation of conditions such as candidiasis, a yeast overgrowth in the gut that can impair immune system function.

I'm new to the forum, but I do want to add my comment. You did not read wrong about yeast extract, it can be a barley product. My husband and I went to a Mexican restaurant the other day and I specifically asked if they put broth in their rice. They did, and they brought me the containers (they used 2 different kinds) and the chicken broth (in powder form) specifically said yeast extract (barley). We have since been trying to avoid it. Sorry I can't verify for all yeast extracts.

Yeast and I are long time enemies.

Yeast sensitivity does happen, but it has nothing to do with celiac disease or gluten.

I asked this when I first joined the forum because it was a little confusing to me and got these answers. I have done no research myself about yeast but I now know since a few days ago that I can't have it, it makes me sick and feel as if I've been glutened. Not saying it has gluten, most of us have other allergies besides gluten, yeast is one of mine apparently.

Yeast should be gluten free.  Possible to have other issues with yeast or the ingredients of a baked good.

All brand-name packaged yeasts sold in the US are gluten free. Autolyzed yeast in a food product is generally considered gluten free. Brewers' yeast, when it's a by-product of beer, is not considered gluten free. Brewers yeast nutritional supplements, however, can be made from either brewer's yeast or sugar. If made from sugar, they are gluten free.

Here is a page containing information about brewers yeast. http://www.glutenfreedietitian.com/gluten_free_diet.php be careful who's advice you listen to, there is a definite difference between Gluten intolerance and sufferers of Celiacs Disease.

I'm not sure what you are trying to say but to repeat what everyone and your article says - plain yeast is gluten-free. Brewers yeast may not be.

I accidentally bought yeast that contains gluten.  (From the mistaken belief ~that all yeast would be gluten free)

 

PLATINUM superior baking yeast by Red Star contains WHEAT.  The 3 packet strip is white with a small red slash on the bottom packet that reads premium instant yeast with dough enhancers

ingredients listed... Yeast, soy flour, ascorbic acid, sorbitan monostearate, WHEAT flour, enzymes.  Now I see next to the ingredients an allergen box in caps soy and gluten from wheat.

 

I had a coupon and was in a hurry during my shopping trip.

 

If you are on a gluten free diet READ the label EVERYTIME/ ALL the TIME!

Yes. A special yeast may contain other ingredients. Also, If it is used in a finished product, it will need to say yeast ( yeast, wheat, etc). Plain old yeast is gluten free. But this highlights the need to read ingredients every time.

Funny this was mentioned. I had a shake with this stuff in it two-days ago and it made me feel a little sick. I bought it from a health shop within an already made smoothie so didn't know what I was really intaking. Read "Brewer's Yeast" later and flipped. I wrote them asking why they call their product Gluten Free if they include Brewer's and this was the reply:

"Thank you for your email and interest in Garden of Life's products. We source yeast that is obtained from sugar and therefore it is gluten free.The yeast is also deactivated in part of the formulating process.

For information on Garden of Life's New and Innovative products, please visit our websites at www.minamius.com, www.thevitamincode.com and www.gardenoflife.com!

May you be blessed with Extraordinary Health,

I would be interested to know what the more knowledgeable folk on here think of this response.

Yeast sourced from sugar is gluten free--as they have explained in their email. They would have no cause to lie, hon.

 

From  Gluten Free Living:

    • This page on the Pepsi site has a chart that lists allergens that are in some of their beverages. http://www.pepsicobeveragefacts.com/home/Allergens It's a pretty handy chart to look at and find the info.  Their sodas are not listed as having wheat, but they didn't put barley in the chart.  Rats.
    • I tried saving receipts and itemizing everything one year. It came out just a few dollars below the standard deduction so I don't even bother anymore. Plus, I don't eat much bread or noodles, the older I get. The hassle of being gluten free has turned me into a fresh fruit, vegetable and meat person.  Good luck.
    • Thanks Ennis and cycling lady, Ennis thanks for letting me know I'm not alone on the goofy intolerance stuff. cycling lady I'd love an orange tree that must be great to just go pluck one to get your serving. We do fruits regularly here too.  I just test the lands of processed land occasionally and apparently the land mines are everywhere. I chose homemade almond milk today.  I am just perplexed my son reacted too which is the concerning thing to me. From the research I've done and your suggestions it's best we remove the product from our list of potential items for it clearly is not a match. have a good day
    • Drop the dairy and if your eating any drop oats. Enzymes to digest lactose are produced by the tips of the villi, so your going to have issues with til they heal. Remove for a few months at least change over to a nut based milk, some hard cheeses might still be fine but you might want to change over to vegan/dairy free versions of it for a while then try reintroducing them.  Fruits yeah large amounts of sugar are more of a issue then the fiber and bother are going to cause bloating, gas, etc. Try eating more dark green leafy veggies, smaller amounts of fruit and eating nuts, seeds, etc in there to up fiber without the sugar and get some fats in there that way, If you eat meats stews, soups in large pots are going to be your friend for awhile easy, simple, cheap, and can be done in batches, and portioned off for a week at a time. Check out the 101 thread for more info, I think some of our EU members can help you more with finding products that I can, same with supplements. Cross contamination and chances your still eating gluten unknowingly are highly possible there is a HUGE learning curve refer to hte 101 thread for more info. That covers the basics. welcome to the club? https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/  
    • Think about this.  I have only had my daughter tested for celiac disease.  She tested negative.  She will need to be retested sometime in the future or when symptoms develop.  But genetic testing?  This might impact her insurability in terms of health and life.  I do not have the answers, but I would research this before having everyone tested.  Some 40% of the population carries the genes to develop celiac disease.  Only a very few actually develop it.  Insurance companies will deny you for all kinds of lame reasons.  Just be careful.
