    Brewers yeast and baker's yeast are not the same thing. Brewer's yeast is used more for the vitamins in it that the fungal properties (rising). I would fear that plain yeast might hurt the stomach because it creates gas.

    I was kind of thinking that....where can I get brewers?? is it possibly in a different section of the store like by the vitamins?

    Quote:Yes, if HEB doesn't have it in the vitamins/pharmacy area I'd be amazed! I know Sun Harvest and Whole Foods carry it, even in the Bulk Foods areas.
