Yeast feeds on the sugar contained with the dough, producing carbon dioxide and alcohol, in a process called fermentation. During bread making, the dough is left in a warm place. The warmth causes fermentation to take place. However if the temperature is too high, for example during the cooking process the yeast is killed.
