Fresh yeast is made of a single-celled organism called saccharomyces cerevisiae. This organism multiplies rapidly when fed sugar in a moist environment.
Fresh yeast sometimes called cake yeast or compressed yeast, is a block of fresh yeast cells that contains about 70% moisture and is commonly used by baking professionals.
It’s pale beige in color, soft and crumbly with a texture similar to a soft pencil eraser, and has a stronger yeast smell than dry yeast.
Country of Origin: Italy
