I haven't gotten around to baking them yet, but figured I could start adding some brewers yeast to some of the things I'm eating and drinking to help me out, since it's one of the supply boosters in the recipe. Well. It's not cheap. My container was about $16 at our local HFS. It's Lewis Labs and grown on sugar beets. They recommend 2 heaping tblspns to milk, juice, soup ect as a supplement. I figured I'd try it in my tea.
NOT a good idea. I retched several times before I could spit it out and get my mouth clean. THEN I figured I'd try it with oatmeal-for a double wallop of supplementation goodness... yeast... oats... they should taste pretty good together, right?! So I went all out... added cinnamon, vanilla, brown sugar, nutmeg. This time I just put one spoonful in. I sat down to dig into my steaming bowl of oatmeal...
That stuff is exceptionally revolting! Is it just me?!? Is it a bad batch!?! Now I'm afraid to make the cookies for the chance of wasting all the other ingredients when I find them inedible. Can you imagine gagging on an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie?!? That just ain't right!
What am I doing wrong here people?!? Tell me I haven't wasted $16 bucks on something totally inedible!
brewer's yeast on popcorn sounds weird to me... do you mean nutrtyional yeast? they are different... brewer's yeast can be bought in pills if you really want to try giving large amounts a go. we used to give it to my dog for some reason... just buried a pill in a snausage... she never knew.

There is also brewer's yeast that is spent yeast from brewing. You can buy it dried, but a popular non-dried product would be . . . Marmite!
And, of course, you can buy ready-to-use, live brewer's yeast if you're making your own potent libations.
Because of the discrepancy in definitions, I have no idea which product is actually recommended for lactation. I can use the nutritional form of yeast, but I cannot use the ale-byproduct spent yeast (celiac disease).
