I enjoy eating whole wheat bread and I'm wondering if yeast is bad for you. I have read that the problem with yeast from a health perspective is that yeast may feed detrimental bacteria such as Candida and contribute to asthma, Crohns Disease and gout. However, according to Google, "dietary yeasts are typically dead when you eat them. Baking yeast has been cooked in bread, and nutritional and other supplemental yeasts are also heated to kill the yeast. When you eat inactive yeast like this, your body simply treats it like any other food. It's digested and the nutrients are absorbed." So I'm curious on the verdict with yeast.
