What is leavened bread?

Leavened bread is bread that contains leaven. Leaven is an agent, such as yeast, that causes batter or dough to rise, especially by fermentation. Leavened bread is soft, light, and fluffy in texture. It contains tiny air pockets making it somewhat resemble a sponge. The leavening is mixed into the bread dough causing it to rise both before it is baked and during baking. Examples are most kinds of bread you would buy in a grocery or bakery – French bread, Italian bread, sandwich breads and rolls, muffins, etc. Unleavened bread may have the same ingredients, but it lacks the key ingredient, such as yeast, which causes the dough to rise. The resulting unleavened bread is very crisp, crunchy, and flat. Examples are similar to crackers and matzohs.
