Trivia - Two for Tuesday

Bread gets its light and fluffy texture from what gas produced when Saccharomyces ferments the carbohydrates in bread dough?

BONUS: What is the common name for Saccharomyces?


  1. Yeast :) I think it gives off CO2.

    My oven is broken right now and I can't do any baking. I am dying to bake bread and biscuits again. Never thought I'd say that I miss cooking, but this has given me a new appreciation. The microwave and stove top cooking is getting old!

  2. Correct-o-mundo.

    Carbon Dioxide and yeast!
