By yeast, I mean brewer’s yeast and not nutritional yeast.
Brewer’s yeast is the type of yeast used for making bread and rolls.
It can be tricky to figure out of you have a problem with gluten or just yeast if you get gas and bloat up every time you eat bread. Even if it doesn’t seem like it should have yeast in it, it might. So you have to read your labels.
Some people have problems with both yeast and gluten.
I have problems with gluten and not yeast. I get nauseous, constipated, my hair falls out, I get rashes, etc.
So, I can eat a gluten free pizza, but I can’t eat a Milky Way candy bar. Thank you malted barley.
If you have ever proofed yeast, you see the bubbling action and that is what pretty much happens when it hits the digestive system and some people are effected severely.
You could go to the doctor and get tested or you can eliminate yeast from your diet and see if that is the culprit. If you are still having problems, go see your doctor.
In order for you to be tested accurately, you need to be eating gluten. Some doctors will diagnose based on history and symptoms, but many won’t.

And yet I have read not nearly as many people are gluten intolerant as claim to be.
Jo, without doing an elimination diet or getting tested, it is really difficult to figure out what the issue is.
