What you're looking for is the first number, and the relationship to the other two numbers. Yours is NPK: 14:10:27 plus trace elements
N=nitrogen P=phosphorus K=potassium.
Yeast needs nitrogen. That's the reason we use this stuff in the first place. The other ingredients don't matter in small doses, but high numbers is just more expensive to buy and wasted in our application.
So look for a plant or lawn food with high nitrogen (N), the first number and low phos/pot (PK). The numbers are always given the same way around, as in NPK.
