- Is yeast healthy? - asked my friend. She meant common baker's yeast.

 - It is, but only dead yeast. - I said. - It contains a lot of  B vitamins group and they are well absorbed. Still, if you eat yeast alive, it will survive in your digestive tract. It can survive the digestion in the stomach feeding on your ingested food. It does not make you ill, but it steals your vitamins. But if you kill it, then you eat the yeast. High temperature in pouring boiling water or baking the yeast  is enough to kill yeast.

Good excuse to eat a few yeast cookies, huh?
