To the best of my knowledge there are no supplement that are truly and completely "whole food" unless one is talking about powdered veggies. If there are any please point me in the right direction and I'll check them out.

I use a vitamin called liquid health that is made from seaweeds, I don't see how it is isn't a whole food vitamin according to the definition quoted. There is no "yeast base" is this supplement. There are other whole food multi vitamins such as the one I mentioned that are not derived from yeast. I do understand that there are companies who "mislead" consumers and that is a shame!
