baking powder

Not the same yeast is used for all recipes: in some cases, in fact, it is not possible to choose natural yeast instead of chemical yeast. What will be the reason for this impossibility, dear friends and dear friends of cooking recipes? Well, the answer is simple: some preparations need to rise directly inside the oven during cooking - making the use of chemical yeast mandatory - while others must rise before cooking, requiring natural yeast instead. Baking yeast is generally chemical and is also called baking.

Use in cooking

Chemical baking yeast finds application in practically every recipe in which it is necessary for leavening to take place during cooking in the oven.


Baking yeast is usually sold in packages that must be stored in a cool, dark place for a long time.


For the preparation of desserts, it is possible to use instant yeast, as well as ammonia for desserts or cream of tartar.
