what are the two types of yeast, and how are they different?
I'm afraid you're incorrect, but (for bonus points) can you tell me what your mistake was?

Also, I've never heard of two types of yeast, did you mean two types of leavening agents?
Oops, I was thinking of something else. I don't know what I was thinking but yeah i know what an oligosaccharide is (around 2-10 monosaccharides).

(This may be better for the food science forum rather than the question marathon forum, by the way)
At States yesterday they used cheese puffs, which seemed to be pretty successful. In addition, I have noticed that chips work great although they aren't the easiest to puncture (pro tip: use pringles or corn chips for relatively consistent size+shape). At an invitational they used marshmallows, although I would heavily discourage it considering the fact that marshmallows are not easy to burn through to the center.

Sucrose is a disaccharide while glucose is a monosaccharide.
