What is yeast?

Yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) is made up of minute one-cell fungi that rapidly multiply if given their favorite foods (sugar or starch) in a moist environment. Its ideal temperature for growth is 110o to 115oF, though for bread-leavening purposes, 80o to 95oF yields the best product.
