So, what is saccharomyces cerevisiae?

Saccharomyces cerevisiae is a single-celled, eukaryotic fungus commonly used in food production. Also known as baker's yeast, this ingredient is responsible for the fermentation of bread dough and beer wort, giving these products their characteristic texture and flavor. Saccharomyces cerevisiae has a distinctively sweet aroma and a slightly sour taste when consumed raw. It is also high in protein, B vitamins, and minerals, making it a popular nutritional supplement. Beyond its culinary uses, this versatile microbe is employed in biotechnology, medicine, and research due to its well-characterized genetics and ease of cultivation.
