OK, I'm guessing it's a strong "NO!", but is brewers yeast pretty safe? I kinda want to make my own pop as shown in this video.

No, brewer's yeast is rich in glutamate. We bought a machine that makes carbonated water. It's great to make different drinks using natural ingredients like lemon juice, my chocolate syrup, milk and ice, ginger, etc.

It is rich in glutamate but so are so many natural whole foods. Isn't it still bound glutamate?

No, it is not all bound glutamate. As I understand, brewer's is a residue left over from the beer brewing process, which includes the fermenting of hops and grains with bacteria, yeast, and enzymes present in the grains. The grains used are rich in natural glutamate, which will impart some residue to the brewer's yeast...some of which will be broken down by the process. The yeast is dried and killed in a drying/ heating process, which also denatures the glutamate...but it is rich not only in free glutamate, but B vitamins...and that's why people take it. Yeast itself is rich in natural glutamate. What we are aiming for is decreasing the amount of excess glutamate in our system. Even natural glutamate as found in whole foods, will be broken down by the digestive system and released into the bloodstream and from the liver. Too much means an overload and we begin to feel off. If all the glutamate we ever received was from whole foods, our bodies would do quite well, but we are being bombarded with glutamate rich additives in so many forms...in our processed, restaurant, and fast foods, toiletries, cosmetics, beverages, meds, vitamins and more.
