Brewer's yeast is an active yeast used to make beer and can also be grown specifically to make nutritional supplements. It is a rich source of minerals (particularly chromium), protein, and the B-complex vitamins. Buttermilk contains lactic acid as well as protein and a number of vitamins and minerals.
