उपशेते यदौचित्यादोक सात्म्यं तदुच्यते ||४९|| (च.सू.६/४९) ||

Yeast is a living fungus that actively helps in the fermentation of food and drinks. The fungus consumes sugar and converts it into carbon dioxide which helps the breads in fermenting and rising and drinks in brewing. But the bubbling reactions that cause the fermentation, may sometimes result in a few unwanted reactions in the body which may be due to the intolerance towards yeast which produces allergic reactions in return.
