So, what is levure?

Levure, also known as yeast, is a microscopic fungus that plays a crucial role in baking and brewing. This versatile ingredient can be found in different forms, such as active dry yeast, instant yeast, and fresh yeast. Its main function is to convert sugars into carbon dioxide gas and alcohol through a process called fermentation, which helps dough rise and adds flavor to bread, pastries, and beer. Additionally, yeast is a good source of vitamins and minerals, such as B-complex vitamins, zinc, and potassium. Whether you're a professional baker or a home cook, levure is an essential ingredient that adds depth and complexity to your culinary creations.
