So, what is levedura?

Levedura is a Portuguese term for yeast, a type of single-celled fungi commonly used in baking, brewing, and fermenting. This microscopic organism plays an important role in transforming raw ingredients into delicious and nutritious foods like bread, beer, and wine. Levedura can be found in various forms, including active dry yeast, instant yeast, and fresh yeast. It works by metabolizing sugars and converting them into carbon dioxide gas, which causes dough to rise and creates a fluffy texture in baked goods. Levedura is a key ingredient in many traditional Portuguese dishes, such as pão de ló and massa sovada, as well as in global cuisine.
