So, what is yeast powder?

Yeast powder is a versatile food ingredient derived from the unicellular fungi, Saccharomyces cerevisiae. It is commonly used as a leavening agent in baking, where it ferments the dough to create a light, airy texture in bread and pastries. Yeast powder can also be used as a flavor enhancer in savory dishes, such as soups and stews. Rich in vitamins and minerals, yeast powder is a popular nutritional supplement for vegetarians and vegans due to its high protein content. It is also known for its ability to aid digestion and boost the immune system, making it a popular ingredient in health foods.
