Varieties vary by country[edit]

Hi, in the article it says that compressed yeast is not widely available in Supermarkets now a days. Here in Sweden it is very easy to find compressed yeast and it is probably more mainstream than dry yeast. I am new to Wikipedia editing so if someone wants to incorporate this into the article I think it would make the article more informative. Maybe Sweden has more compressed yeast because it is colder. I would have added that myself but I do not have any sources. So I'll leave this in the hands of the professionals.

  • I guess I jumped to conclusions on that one. It actually isn't too hard to edit -- just check the help files. (BTW, you should have signed your post -- the four tildes thing at the top.) Haikupoet (talk) 08:07, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

The first line of the main article includes several gibberish words; someone please fix it.

Cysteine as a yeast accelerant[edit]

I read a science encyclopedia that said that commercial breadmakers have a bread rise time between ten to twenty minutes rather than three or four hours as a result of adding cysteine to the bread Cysteine is a limiting nutrient to bread yeast thus a surplus of cysteine is commercially use to create much faster rise times that transformed breadmaking from batch to continuous process a huge efficieny gain

I've actually added a supplement tablet of N acetyl cysteine to a yeast nutrient solution It produces bubbles much much more rapidly than the yeast plus nutrient solution Thus I think the effect is real

I mention this as researchers using S. cerevisiae may find this of use Perhaps cysteine affects the growth rate of other fungi as well also the that factory bread is immediate rather than batch as a result of yeast nutrition is of value at the article

Bread machine yeast[edit]

Is hyperproductive bread machine yeast a genetically engineered product

Sonification of a gene[edit]

--- sorry I'm a Wiki novice and don't know the correct markup to use. Is there anyway I can link my sonification of Baker's yeast to this page? It resides here; - Thanks. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:58, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

I don't think that a reading of the raw DNA code meets our guidelines for external links, because the average reader will not learn anything useful or interesting about baker's yeast as a result. WhatamIdoing (talk) 20:40, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

Saccharomyces exiguus ?[edit]

A sentence currently reads: "Saccharomyces exiguus (also known as S. minor) is a wild yeast found on plants, fruits, and grains that is occasionally used for baking; it is not, however, generally used in a pure form, but comes from being propagated in a sourdough starter."

Why is anything about sourdough being written in an article about Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Baker's yeast? I propose deleting the sentence.Gzuufy (talk) 06:19, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

It seems to me that since Saccharomyces exiguus is used by bakers, it is obviously a type of baker's yeast. (talk) 10:59, 8 October 2014 (UTC)BeeCier

Link to German Wikipedia[edit]

This should link to "Backhefe" on the German Wikipedia, but I can't change the linking (too complicated error on OSI layer 8). (talk) 09:55, 11 January 2014 (UTC)
