fungi definition and meaning

What are "fungi"?

Fungi, such as mushrooms and yeast, are commonly used in cooking and food production for their distinct flavors and properties. Mushrooms add earthy and savory notes to dishes, while yeast is used in baking to leaven bread and create fermentation in beverages like beer and wine. Fungi also play a role in cheese and yogurt production, as certain types of mold and bacteria are intentionally introduced to create unique textures and flavors. Additionally, fungi are rich in nutrients and can be consumed for their nutritional benefits.
