So, what is élesztő?

Élesztő, also known as yeast, is a crucial ingredient used in the baking process to help dough rise and achieve a soft, fluffy texture. This single-celled fungus is typically added to flour, water, and sugar mixtures to activate fermentation, which produces carbon dioxide gas and causes the dough to expand. Yeast comes in various forms, including active dry yeast, instant yeast, and fresh yeast, each with its unique characteristics and usage requirements. With its ability to leaven bread, pastries, and even beer, élesztő has become an essential ingredient in the culinary world, providing the perfect rise and taste to baked goods.
