ASCA and eating foods with yeast in them

Question! I am relatively new to Crohn's and although I've seen some suggestions for diet changes (no gluten, careful with dairy etc, all of which I've done for many years), I haven't seen many warnings about avoiding foods with yeast in it. Be it pastry, gluten free bread etc. And I'm very surprised it isn't more of a warning food, considering the ASCA antibody. Which makes me wonder if I'm understanding it correctly...

I was elevated for both IGG and IGA antibodies for ASCA. It is my understanding that the antibodies are to S Cerevisiae, which is bakers yeast. So, in theory I would think avoiding food with bakers yeast in it would be necessary, or at the very least helpful for those with Crohn's. I haven't been avoiding yeast because my doctor never explained or made mention of it, and I'm a bit frustrated with him! Especially since my pain and flare isn't improving.

Can you all share what your experience is? Is yeast problematic for Crohn's? Or Only if you have the ASCA antibodies? Or is it ok when baked into items? I'm so confused! I would love to know how yeast in baked foods affect others and if it's important to avoid or not.

Thanks in advance!
