So, what is levure fraîche de?

Levure fraîche de, also known as fresh yeast, is a natural ingredient used in baking to make bread rise. It is a moist, cake-like substance made from a mixture of water, sugar, and living yeast cells. Levure fraîche de is often sold in small cubes or blocks and must be refrigerated to maintain its freshness. Unlike dry yeast, it has a shorter shelf life and is highly perishable. When added to dough, levure fraîche de activates the fermentation process, producing carbon dioxide gas that makes the dough rise and gives bread its characteristic texture and flavor. It is a common ingredient in French and European baking.
