When I think of yeasts, the first thing that comes to mind is the smell of fresh bread baking in the oven. I've always been fascinated by the process of bread making. As I grew older, I discovered that yeasts are responsible for the delicious aroma of bread and play a crucial role in many other fermented foods and beverages.

What are Yeasts? Single-celled microorganisms are found everywhere, from soil to plants, animals, and even the human body. They have been used for centuries in the fermentation of various foods and beverages, thanks to their ability to convert sugars and starches into alcohol and carbon dioxide.

One of the most common examples of yeast fermentation is in bread making. When yeast is added to a mixture of flour, water, and sugar, it starts to feed on the sugar, producing carbon dioxide gas that causes the dough to rise. As the dough bakes, the yeast dies, leaving behind tiny pockets of air that give bread its characteristic texture and flavor.

But bread is not the only food that benefits from yeast fermentation. Yogurt, cheese, kefir, beer, and wine are all products of the fermentation process, and yeasts play a critical role in their creation.

Aside from their role in fermentation, yeasts offer several health benefits. For example, some yeast strains have antioxidant properties, which can help protect against inflammation and oxidative stress. Yeasts can also be good for gut health, helping to maintain a healthy balance of bacteria in the gut and improving digestion.
