If I have a yeast allergy, would taking red yeast pills be bad?

If I have a yeast allergy, would taking red yeast pills be bad?

Not necessarily: The species of yeast causing common yeast allergy is very different from the red yeast species. They are in different genera. That said, characterization of yeast species is fluid because the yeast phase of the mold is very different from the mycelial stage - two phases of the fungal life cycle. Best advice is to discuss this question with the allergist who tested you for yeast allergy. ...Read more

If I have a brewers yeast allergy can I eat manna?

Thus, i doubt you can still find it. (taken with additions from http://www.Straightdope.Com/columns/read/1402/followup-wasnt-manna-placed-in-the-ark-of-the-covenant). ...Read more

Is there a permanent cure for yeast allergy?

Not specifically.: Sometimes it is a cross-reactivity to allergy to another mold that may improve with immunotherapy. This would not be the typical case and you should not expect improvement. However, you may eat any product that does not use yeast in the making of it. That would include such breads as tortilla, pita, flatbread, biscuits, cornbread. ...Read more
