"Yeast" in context

Yeast is a single-celled, microscopic organism that plays an important role in many foods and beverages we enjoy. It is used to help leaven breads, ferment alcohol, and produce carbon dioxide in beer. In addition, it is used to make foods like pizza dough, pastries, and other baked goods. Yeast is able to ferment sugars, producing carbon dioxide and alcohol. This process is known as fermentation. As yeast ferments the mixture, bubbles of carbon dioxide are produced, resulting in a rising dough or foamy beer.
