Brewers Yeast is a rich source of nutrients, typically used for making beer, but can also be used to make bread and other consumables.
There are conflicting reports on how much vitamin B12 brewers yeast provides, however, it is not wise to count on brewers yeast as your sole source of vitamin B12. Yeast which does provide it is likely fortified.
The conclusion is that you should check labels for vitamin B12 before counting on yeast to provide it.
