Solgar Brewer's Yeast Powder is a completely natural primary Brewer's Yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) that provides a source of amino acids, B-complex vitamins and minerals.
Brewer’s yeast is the dried, pulverized cells of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, a type of fungus, and is a rich source of B-complex vitamins, protein (providing all essential amino acids), and minerals, including a biologically active form of chromium known as glucose tolerance factor (GTF). Brewer’s yeast is usually a by-product of the brewing industry and should not be confused with nutritional yeast or torula yeast, which are low in chromium.
Where is it found?
Brewer’s yeast, which has a very bitter taste, is recovered after being used in the beer-brewing process. Brewer’s yeast can also be grown specifically for harvest as a nutritional supplement. “De-bittered” yeast is also available, though most yeast sold in health food stores that does not taste bitter is not real brewer’s yeast.
Solgar Commitment to Excellence
Solgar has been innovating and producing fine quality nutritional supplements since 1947. Their ongoing mission is to provide consumers with top-quality, innovative, science-based nutritional supplements to enhance their total health and well-being. They are committed to exclusively distributing their products in the natural products industry where knowledgeable retailers worldwide can guide consumers through the vast array of choices.
Solgar's Global Manufacturing
Solgar's state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, located in Leonia, New Jersey, meets pharmaceutical standards for machinery, procedures, and quality control. These standards exceed those required by the supplement industry, but they feel they are necessary to provide their customers with the best quality products possible. With their own manufacturing, laboratory, and distribution facilities, Solgar ensures quality throughout the entire process.
The Solgar Gold Standard
Solgar has been manufacturing fine quality nutritional supplements for over 60 years in an industry that is constantly evolving. Throughout these changes, they have never lost sight of their original mission - to provide consumers with the highest quality nutritional products and information to help promote optimal health. Their attention to detail from manufacturing through distribution has enabled them to set, maintain, and continually raise the Gold Standard for quality nutritional supplements, education, and service. The Solgar Gold Standard is much more stringent than the government requires.
Researched, Science-Based Products
Solgar is known globally for producing innovative, science-based, efficacious products. All Solgar products have been thoroughly researched by their R & D department. They have a team of experts dedicated exclusively to research. They also sponsor research on existing and potential new products by donating funding, their products, and their experts to studies across the world.

Solgar has high standards for quality. They have a rigorous quality control system in place to test products at every stage, from raw material to finished product. All materials coming into their facility are subject to stringent tests to ensure they are the highest quality; any that don't meet their standards are rejected and immediately sent back to their suppliers. A rarity in the industry, Solgar has its own on-site Quality Laboratory that ensures that each product leaving their door meets their Gold Standard for excellence. They don't just do one test on their products. They do many.
USP Water Purification System
Solgar invested over $1 million in a state-of-the-art USP reverse osmosis water purification system - widely considered the finest type of filtration available. This isn't required by Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs), but the Solgar Gold Standard requires that they have the best system possible.
HEPA Air Filtration System
All of the air that circulates through the Solgar facility passes through a bank of HEPA filters that remove 99.9% of airborne particulates. Both air and water samples are routinely tested in Solgar's in-house laboratory.
Solgar disassembles and cleans every piece of machinery after each formula change. In some cases, the equipment is broken down into hundreds of parts and may take up to eight hours to clean and reassemble. They also use food-grade, environmentally friendly cleaners to sanitize equipment between batches.
Most Solgar products are gluten free.
Solgar selected KOF-K Kosher Supervision, an international organization that follows the strictest laws of the kosher observance, to certify their products.
Solgar chose the Halal Food Authority (HFA), a U.K.-based organization that adheres to the strictest laws of Halal, to certify their products.
Aqueous Coated Tablets
Solgar was one of the first in the Natural Products Industry to integrate a natural, water-based coating for all of their coated-tablet products as an alternative to using the more common solvent-based coating agent, shellac (pharmaceutical glaze). This natural, water-based coating improves disintegration and dissolution, providing better absorption of the nutrients.
Recyclable Amber Glass Bottles
Their 100% recyclable glass bottles are non-leaching, non-porous, and odorless. Although these "old style" medicine bottles cost more, Solgar uses them because they protect against heat, light, and moisture, thereby preserving nutrient potency.
Their specialty market demands innovative products that are unique and available in brands exclusive to their class of trade. Solgar is committed to distributing their products through fine health food retailers across the globe where customers can find the best products along with the best nutritional advice about them. Solgar's finished products are distributed from their own global distribution centers. This is another way they ensure the integrity of their products.
Solgar is distributed throughout the world in over 45 different countries, with affiliate offices in the U.K., Spain, South Africa, and New Zealand.
