Question:

From California, USA:

Does Brewer's Yeast work like cornstarch to slow glucose absorption?

Answer:

As far as I know, that was a thought about 10-15 years ago. It is very rich in many nutrients, but quite unpalatable, so I do not see it recommended.

Additional Comments from Dr. Donough O'Brien:

Another reason for the use of Brewers Yeast was for its content of a chromium-containing factor called 'glucose tolerance factor'. The fad never really caught on.
