Allergy to baker's yeast is rare, but sometimes it has not been diagnosed for many years or is misdiagnosed as gluten intolerance or allergy. Baker's sensitivity to yeast is rarely limited to a few varieties that cause bread to rise. More commonly, baker's yeast allergies are also caused by beer yeast, environmental molds and fungi. Apple vinegar does not contain baker's yeast, but may contain residues of beer yeast. Therefore, if eating bread can cause allergic reactions, please use apple vinegar and other fermented products with caution. Consult your doctor about allergy tests.

Adding yeast makes dough rise; yeast consumes sugar in flour and produces carbon dioxide gas. In contrast, dough without yeast produces flat bread. Baker's yeast, similar to beer yeast, is used to ferment grains and fruits to produce beer, wine and apple vinegar. Eating baker's yeast does not cause yeast infections in the gastrointestinal tract or vagina, which are usually caused by another kind of Candida albicans. However, it may be allergic to baker's yeast. Yeast allergy is not common, but it may be yeast allergy mediated by ig-e, which is a response triggered by the immune system. Those who are allergic to yeast may be affected by all kinds, including the types used by bakers and winemakers, as well as environmental fungi and molds. Getting a skin test from your doctor can help you better understand what yeasts, fungi and fungi cause your allergies. Common symptoms include swelling of the face, mouth and throat; dyspnea; measles; nasal secretions and fatigue. Foods containing baker's yeast include bread, pizza dough, yeast extracts and some vitamin supplements. Apple vinegar is made from apple vinegar fermented by bacteria and Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Yeast eats fructose from apples and leaves alcohol, which turns bacteria into acids. The final product is rich in acetic acid and vitamin C, which usually kills microorganisms in vinegar, but some residual components of yeast, such as cell walls, may trigger allergic reactions. Other commonly used products containing beer yeast include beer, wine, cereal alcohol, soy sauce, cider and malt.
