So, what is hiiva?

Hiiva is a Finnish term used to describe yeast, a type of microscopic fungus that plays a significant role in baking and brewing. This versatile ingredient is responsible for the fermentation process that helps dough rise and gives bread its airy texture. Yeast also produces carbon dioxide, which contributes to the lightness of baked goods. Additionally, yeast is used in the production of beer, wine, and other alcoholic beverages. With its ability to convert sugars into alcohol and carbon dioxide, yeast has been an essential ingredient in the culinary world for centuries. Whether you're a professional baker or a home cook, hiiva is a must-have in your pantry.
