Is yeast bacterial or fungal?


Yeast is a type of fungus. While yeast and bacteria are both single-celled microorganisms, they belong to different biological kingdoms. Bacteria belong to the kingdom Monera, while yeast and other fungi belong to the kingdom Fungi. Yeast is commonly used in baking and brewing due to its ability to ferment carbohydrates, producing carbon dioxide and alcohol.
