Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDQE Octobtf Ask Andy YEAST Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Edwin Wheland, age 12, of Youngstown, Ohio, for his question: What do they 'use to make yeast? Yeast, as we know, is that wonderful springy stuff used to make our bread light and spongy. Believe it or not, it is alive. And the only way to get more of it is to coax it to mul- tiply. This is done by providing it with warmth, moisture and helpings of sugary foodrPeople have been doing this since the first bakers baked yeasty loaves in the coals of the family camp- fire. We share our world with multitudes of mini plants and animals, most of them too small for our eyes to see. These midget populations include thousands of different yeasts, all of them single- celled relatives of the fungus plant family. Like their larger mushroom the yeasts need warmth and moisture, shade and rather rich diets When all these conditions are just right, one pound of yeast can multiply and become 30 pounds of yeast in about 12 hours. There are numerous wild yeasts with known and unknown qual- ities. But most of the types we use are well-known, highly purified tame yeasts. The most common domestic types are used in bread and bakery products. The multiplication problem begins with a pure culture of this or that suitable yeast strain. This wad of original seed is made of living, sausage-shaped cells, which measure about in an inch. The project is performed in an enormous vat, fitted with pipes to let in air and more pipes to keep the mix- ture warm. Maybe the original seed yeast is a 500- pound wad of pale cells. Moisture and food are added in intervals, and the mul- tiplication proceeds at a fan- tastic rate. A thriving yeast cell mul- tiplies by budding an identical daughter cell In a couple of hours the well-fed daughter sprouts a budding daughter and so on After 10 hours, the original 500 pounds of yeast becomes pounds of iden- tical .yeast. This astounding multiplication continues at the same rate as long as the soupy mixture gets regular helpings of suitable food, warmth and moisture. As a first meal is a watery mixture of sugar molasses with a small helping of ammonium salts to provide needed nitrogen. The feasting, seed cells gorge, multiply and double in weight in about two hours. Then the batch is ready for a more concentrated meal. In two hours, the mother and daughter cells sprout new daughter cells and theyeast doubles again. After 10 to 12 hours, all the food is converted into yeast and the soupy mixture is ready to be processed for market. When the moist mixture is lively cells sink into a dormant state. They may be packaged like dried crumbs or mixed with starch to form yeast cakes. When the dor- mant cells are mixed with warm water and sugar they wake uptand start multiplying again. But this time they work to add spongy lightness to our bread. Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS Oct. 5, 1974 United States forces under Gen. W H.

Cuban health service impresses medic team CHICAGO (AP) The socialist revolution in Cuba has resulted in universal high quality medical care for the Cuban people, says a United States physician just back from a month's visit. Dr. Quentin Young said health care has had a high pri- ority in Cuba since the revolu- tion in 1959 and is considered a social right, available free to all. Young was one of a group of 16 U.S. medical personnel who visited Cuba under spon- sorship cf the U.S.-Cuban Health Exchange. Young, head of the Cook County Hospital department of medicine, said Cuba was left medically impoverished when 60 per cent of its doctors left and the medical school lost 85 per cent of its faculty after the revolution. But be said the emphasis on health care led to a crash pro- gram for replacements. And while there is stll a shortage of nurses, there are now of them better distribu- tion so that Havana has fewer doctors and some smaller cities have more. Young credited block organ- izations with helping to im- prove health care and said the committees have created "an enormous health education which be said the U.S. might emulate. Their programs have resulted in pregnant women averaging 6.5 visits to a physi- cian before delivery in un- complicated pregnancies, whereas, said Young, one- third of the pregnant women seen at Cook County Hospital have seen a doctor only once during pregnancy.
