So, what is bakers's yeast?

Baker's yeast is a single-celled fungus that is commonly used in baking as a leavening agent, helping dough to rise and achieve a light, airy texture. This type of yeast is typically derived from a strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and is available in various forms, including compressed blocks, dry granules or even instant powders. It works by converting the sugars present in dough into carbon dioxide gas which causes the dough to expand and rise. While baker's yeast is commonly used in breads and pastries, it can also be added to beer, wine and other fermented foods.
