Yeast is unicellular fungi. Fungi are plant-like organisms that lack chlorophyll. The word 'yeast' comes from the Old English word 'gist' or 'gyst' and from the Indo-European word 'yes' meaning 'boil', 'foam' or 'bubble'. Archaeologists digging in Egyptian ruins found early grinding stones and baking chambers for yeasted bread, as well as drawings of 4,000-year-old bakeries and breweries. Yeast microbes are probably one of the earliest domesticated organisms. Yeasts are chemoorganotrophs, which means they use organic compounds as a source of energy and do not require sunlight to grow.
