I have wondered the same thing myself, and I have searched and searched for info on the www without finding anything definitive.  I suspect it isn't "SCD legal" though my tub of nutritional yeast specifically says it is "candida-free".  I have not been using it while trying to be SCD compliant.  I'd love to know if anyone else knows for sure.

I'm guessing any kind of yeast would be a no-no. It's all fungus, isn't it??

Yes, the SCD info says baker's yeast is illegal, but baker's yeast is different from nutritional yeast.

Not sure what you have, but wikipedia says nutritional yeast is "usually Saccharomyces cerevisiae" and the SCD link I listed above says Baker's yeast, otherwise known as Saccharamyces cerevisae is illegal.

Of course, you could always pose the question to an SCD-specific support group: http://www.scdiet.org/5community/email.html
Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis spring 1999. Have been in remission for years with only a few minor blips. Scope on 6/22 showed no inflammation at all.

You're right, baker's yeast, brewer's yeast, and nutritional yeast are all the same organism: Saccharomyces cerevisiae.  I still wonder, though, since bakers and brewer's yeast are considered "active" and nutritional yeast is considered "inactive"... I assume the reason yeast isn't SCD legal is because of the fear that the yeast organisms will colonize within your body and cause problems.  I wonder if that could possibly happen with the deactivated nutritional yeast? 
 
I am very curious about this too because I like nutritional yeast (though mostly I liked it on popcorn with I also no longer eat :( ), but I like it on eggs too, or maybe salads?  Sigh...
