List of Ingredients

Yeast, baker's, active dry


Yeast is the driving force behind the magical process that makes bread rise.   It has 3 roles in bread making; to make bread rise, to strengthen and develop the gluten, and to contribute to the flavors in the bread.
Yeast reacts with the sugar in the dough and excretes carbon dioxide and alcohol making the bread rise.  When mixed with flour and water, the yeast breads down the starches into simple sugars and releases the carbon dioxide and ethyl alcohol into the existing air bubbles in the dough.  If the dough has a strong gluten content, the carbon dioxide is held within the dough and begins inflating it.
This gluten becomes more elastic the more it is worked.  The kneading of the dough along with the yeast helps develop the gluten (elasticity).  As the bread is worked, the yeast helps develop the gluten and as it develops more gluten it produces more bubbles to hold the gas and increase the rise.   When you punch down the dough you will notice how smooth & strong the gluten has become.
The fermentation of the dough adds flavor to the bread.  The yeast breaks down the starch into more flavorful sugars.   It uses these sugars to not only make carbon dioxide and alcohol but also to produce a host of organic acids and amino acids.  These develop the flavor difference between bread and just flour and water.
