I think "*very* deficient" [emphasis mine] is an exaggeration.
Even though it only has a quarter to a third the barley malt of
a modern all-malt homebrew (grocery store malt syrup was up to
50% rice and/or corn), that little bit can still provide a goodly
amount of yeast nutrition.  I would consider a straight mead to
be "very deficient" on that point, but not a beverage made with
at least 20% malt.
