So, what is yeast?

Yeast is a type of single-celled fungus that is widely used in food production. It plays a crucial role in the process of fermentation, converting sugars into carbon dioxide and alcohol. This process is what gives bread its fluffy texture, beer its bubbly fizz, and wine its complex flavors. Yeast comes in many forms, including fresh, dry, and instant, and can be used in a variety of baked goods, such as bread, pizza dough, and pastries. It is also an excellent source of protein, fiber, and vitamins, making it a nutritious addition to any diet.

How to quickly find the source of ingredients like yeast?

We've built a database of 49359 ingredients (and growing), classified as "vegan", "non-vegan", or "maybe vegan".

We use it in our vegan ingredients scanner, which is the best way to avoid non-vegan ingredients - you take a picture of a product's ingredient list, and the app tells you if the product is vegan or not.
