Yeast is a microscopic plant and as a living organism, similar to us, it is very sensitive to heat.
Yeast is also a leavening agent that uses the process of FERMENTATION.
FERMENTATION is the process by which yeast acts on carbohydrates and changes them into carbon dioxide gas and alcohol. This release of gas produces the rising action. The ALCOHOL evaporates completely during and immediately after baking.
