Caption: Yeast. Coloured scanning electron micrograph of yeast cells, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, commonly known as baker's or Brewer's yeast growing on potato dextrose agar. Yeast is able to ferment sugar, producing alcohol & carbon dioxide in the process. It has long been used in the brewing of beer, the production of wine & in baking of leavened bread (carbon dioxide causes the dough to rise). Medically, it is used as a source of vitamin B1, riboflavin & nicotinic acid. Yeast divide rapidly by budding off new cells (visible here). They also reproduce sexually. Magnification X430 at 35mm, X3000 at 10x8 inch size.
