So, what is jäst?

Jäst, also known as yeast, is a single-celled microorganism that plays a crucial role in the process of fermentation. This natural ingredient is used in baking to help bread rise and develop a soft, fluffy texture. It works by consuming sugars and producing carbon dioxide gas, which gets trapped in the dough and causes it to expand. Jäst comes in various forms, including fresh, dry, and instant. It is an essential ingredient in many traditional Swedish recipes, such as cinnamon buns and crispbread, and is also commonly used in beer and wine making. With its ability to transform simple ingredients into delicious baked goods and beverages, jäst is a staple ingredient in kitchens around the world.
