GROWN ON SUGAR BEETS IN EASTERN EUROPE
Brewer's yeast is one of the
foods known as it is loaded with proteins, minerals and vitamins. And it is the only brewer's
yeast that actually
It provides the protein you want without the extra calories and
cholesterol you don't. Since it is low in fat, carbohydrates, sodium
and calories, it is especially useful for dieters, vegetarians,
diabetics and hypoglycemics. In fact, it seems to have a bounty of
nutritional goodness for just about everybody.
The microscopic plant, saccharomyces
cerevisiae, commonly referred to as brewer's yeast, is nutritionally superior to
all other types of
yeast. It is one of the best natural sources of the entire
B-Vitamin complex. It is a superb source of concentrated protein
including all the essential amino acids. In fact, brewer's yeast
contains about ten times as much protein as the same amount of
It is extraordinarily
rich in nucleic acid, which is a basic element in cell
development and is believed to retard the aging process. It is the best nutritional source of
which occurs in brewer's yeast in an organic compound known as GTF
(glucose tolerance factor). This vital factor is essential for the
production of functionally effective insulin, without which the body
cannot handle glucose - its major fuel. It is also rich in Selenium, Potassium
other factors too numerous to mention here. All are in a most available
form for immediate use by the body.
nutritional credentials, why doesn't everybody already take brewer's
yeast every day?
The answer is, many people simply cannot take the awful taste. Lewis
Laboratories has discovered and imported a truly good tasting brewer's
yeast. Not only is it good tasting, but it has a higher protein content
and richer nutritional content than any other natural brewer's yeast on
the market. It is not fortified, nor blended. Absolutely nothing has been added to this natural
How can pure, unbleached, untreated brewer's yeast taste so good? Of
course, there is a reason. Most brewer's yeast is recovered after use
in the brewing process (grown in vats containing grain, malt and hops).
As the yeast plant feeds on this culture medium, it produces alcohol
while it absorbs nutritional factors from the medium. At the same time,
the yeast picks up chemicals and other undesirable materials. Although
it goes through a debittering process designed to remove the
contaminating oils, which are mostly lupulins giving it the bitter
taste, the recovered end product is barely edible. This debittering
process also results in the loss of some protein (amino acids),
minerals and trace elements from the product.
Laboratories' 100% Pure Premium
Imported Brewer's Yeast is not derived from the brewing process and
needs no debittering. It does not go through any chemical processing.
It is a 100% pure, natural product retaining a protein content of
55-60% and a nucleic acid content of 8-10%. This is the reason it is
completely digestible and functional and why many people who are
allergic to other yeasts have no problem with this one. The culture
medium on which the yeast is grown is most important since it is from
this medium that the minerals, metals and vital micronutrients are
Unlike ordinary brewer's yeast, which is grown on grain and hops
liquor, Lewis Labs' 100% Pure Premium Imported Brewer?s Yeast is a
primary yeast grown
on sugar beets.
Derived from the sugar beets is a rich spectrum of nutrients. Sugar
beets are known to absorb so much out of the soil's minerals, metals,
trace elements, etc. that they can only be grown in one field for two
years without depleting the soil.
beets absorb nutrients from the soil faster than almost any other crop
and, as a result, this yeast is exceptionally rich in Selenium,
Chromium, Potassium, Magnesium, Sodium, Copper, Manganese, Iron, Zinc
and other factors natural to yeast.
