So, what is hefen?

Hefen, also known as yeast, is a tiny single-celled organism that plays a crucial role in the fermentation process of many baked goods and alcoholic beverages. This versatile ingredient comes in different forms, including active dry yeast, instant yeast, and fresh yeast, each with its unique characteristics. Hefen provides a rich source of protein, vitamins, and minerals, making it a valuable nutritional supplement. With its ability to convert sugars into carbon dioxide and alcohol, hefen is essential in creating the airy texture and distinct flavors of bread, pastries, and beer. Its distinctive aroma and taste profile add depth and complexity to dishes, making it a staple ingredient in many cuisines worldwide.
