(Yeast)  Yeast are single-celled plants.  They are fungus that ferment starches and sugars.  One of the by-products of this fermentation process is carbon dioxide gas which forms little bubbles in bread dough and causes it to rise.  These fungus plants are killed during baking.  We purchase our yeast in bulk (1 or 2 pound packages) and store in tightly sealed glass jars in our refrigerator (Photo-left: actual size).  We have found two forms of commercial yeast: the one pictured above is an enlargement of the "bead" or granular form of dried yeast clusters, and the other is an extruded "cylindrical" form (See Yeast 2).

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
