About

Yeast, is used in baking as a leavening agent, where it converts the fermentable sugars present in dough into the gas carbon dioxide. This causes the dough to expand or rise as gas forms pockets or bubbles.

When the dough is baked the yeast dies and the air pockets "set", giving the baked product a soft and spongy texture. The use of potatoes, water from potato boiling, eggs, or sugar in a bread dough accelerates the growth of yeasts. Most yeasts used in baking are of the same species common in alcoholic fermentation.

When yeast is used for making bread, it is mixed with flour, salt, and warm water or milk. The dough is kneaded until it is smooth, and then left to rise, sometimes until it has doubled in size. Some bread doughs are knocked back after one rising and left to rise again.

A longer rising time gives a better flavour, but the yeast can fail to raise the bread in the final stages if it is left for too long initially. The dough is then shaped into loaves, left to rise until it is the correct size, and then baked. Dried yeast is usually specified for use in a bread machine, however a (wet) sourdough starter can also work.

Nutritional yeast has a nutty, cheesy, creamy flavor which makes it popular as an ingredient in cheeseParmesan cheese. Another popular use is as a topping for popcorn. It can also be used in mashed and fried potatoes, as well as putting it into scrambled eggs. It comes in the form of flakes, or as a yellow powder similar in texture to cornmeal, and can be found in the bulk aisle of most natural food stores. substitutes. It is often used by vegans in place of.

Caputo then created the perfect solution after studying pizza makers and pastry chef needs - No chemicals, long shelf life, Caputo Yeast has a certain fermentative power, has a sure and measurable force, pushes over time and does not collapse. Moreover, it dies completely at 58 ° C unlike chemical yeasts which, apart from collapsing if left to ferment too much, do not die during cooking, causing digestion fatigue. Caputo Yeast is also naturally gluten-free and therefore suitable for all preparations that do not. In other words we now have an Italian yeast, from a selected stock, with prolonged fermentative power that pushes over time and is suitable for long leavening. Also fed with natural Italian molasses that also gives a pleasant taste to the yeast itself. Yeast is dry and active, it must be added directly to the flour and in terms of savings it must be specified that the dose corresponds to ½ - ⅓ of that of fresh yeast. Active Dry Yeast perfect in combination with Caputo 00 Flour - Made in Italy
