No, potatoes definitely do not contain yeast. Yeast is a rising agent added to flour to help it rise - and that makes bread.

But no, yeast is not made from potatoes and is a micro-organism, in fact a fungi, that's cultivated and is purchased in small packets which we then add to flour to make bread.
