Reduce mixing time by 10%-30% and shorten rising time by up to 50% with this Lessafre SAF-Instant Red dry yeast 1 lb. vacuum pack! This SAF yeast, also known as "bread machine yeast", differs from active dry yeast in that it does not need to be dissolved in warm water before it is used, saving you time and, ultimately, money!
Versatile enough to be used in a variety of bread-making processes with sugar levels up to 12%, it can be poured directly into a mixer, mixed with flour, or added at the beginning of a mixing process. All yeast, which acts as a leavening agent, converts sugars found in dough into carbon dioxide, causing the dough to expand. This process is what helps give bread the soft and airy texture we all know and love! This 1 lb. bag of SAF-instant yeast is perfect for making delicious bagels, croissants, donuts, and more.

The price for this 1-lb package cannot be beat. You will want to store this product in the freezer to maintain the freshness. Instant yeast is so easy to use- just add in with your dry ingredients.

The price cant really be beat. You will not find another website or store that will sell it for this low. The quality is great as well.

Have been using SAF Instant Yeast to make whole wheat bread for a few years now and it works fine. It can also be used to make bread in the bread machine rather than buying the more expensive bread machine yeast. I keep it in a glass jar in the freezer and it keeps well that way.

BEST QUALITY YEAST OUT THERE. Do not waste money on supermarket yeast. This is the best quality yeast out there and the price is perfect. I pour the yeast into a 26oz metal container sold on this site and store in the freezer. It lasts over a year.

The best dry yeast on the market. At a price cheaper than you will find anywhere else. Product is fresh, makes fantastic breads, and no holes or any other problems in shipping.

This is great instant yeast for the price. These 1lb packages are a good size for the home baker. I make pizza frequently and this stuff works well for a quick pizza dough.
Jeremiah G. Posted on 11/26/2013
What a wonderful deal on a great product. I paid more elsewhere. This yeast also works great with bread machines, and we are sure to buy more.
Geraldine C. Posted on 10/30/2013
Having never used an instant yeast before, I am sure enjoying this on. Every loaf rises beautifully. The price is fabulous here. I had been unable to find this product in the retail market in my area.
Kim H. Posted on 10/10/2013
This is super reliable yeast that produces a great rise and never fails. I store the yeast is in airtight container in the refrigerator but if you don't bake that often you might want to freezer part of the package. Another bonus about this product is that doesn't require proofing.
Sarah B. Posted on 07/16/2013
This SAF yeast is fantastic. It has awesome shelf life, I store mine outside the cooler at room temp. It makes my doughs rise very well and is always reliable.
Daniel S. Posted on 04/07/2013
I can't get this locally. I loved being able to not have to proof my yeast before adding it to my flour. Great price too!
Shannon F. Posted on 01/29/2013
I love using this yeast. Just make sure to refrigerate it after opening it. It's the brand that I grew up using for breads and other pastries.
Laura B. Posted on 01/20/2013
This yeast produces the best bread and pizza doughs. I Never have any issues with improper rising. If consistent results are what your after, this is the yeast to use.
Judy G. Posted on 01/19/2013
This yeast is a great value, and works great with all sorts of breads. Think it might last you forever? Transfer to an airtight container and keep in the freezer, and it will keep a good, long time!
Christine W. Posted on 11/27/2012
This instant yeast is great for baking your own bread and has a great taste! Just dissolve in warm water! It's as easy as that. Great price and quality.
James B. Posted on 11/15/2012
Great brand of yeast!! Perfect for the home baker! Nice item to have for any restaurant that enjoys baking fresh dinner rolls from time to time!!!
Eric K. Posted on 09/02/2012
Foolproof! Great yeast at a great price - 2 years using this product and have great success. Vacuum sealed packages give long shelf life to boot!
David A. Posted on 03/01/2012
you can't have enough yeast when you like to bake. i love cooking and baking and yeast has always been on of my main essence for my cooking and baking hobby
Wendy Z. Posted on 01/05/2012
Hello. I bake a lot this time of year and again in the Spring for the holidays. [Sometimes as much as 100 loaves of bread and dozens of muffins and rolls. For friends and "community service" reasons] This is great instant yeast! It is vacuum sealed and will last at least a year even after opening. If refrigerated it can last a few years [sealed tightly]. If vacuum sealed and frozen it can last 7 - 10 years according to the manufacturer.[I contacted them years ago]. i have some that was frozen and vacuum sealed that was five+ years old. Worked great both in the bread machines and as in artisanal bread. Great stuff!!!!! Great store!!!!!
Richard E. Posted on 11/21/2011
when it comes to yeast this 1 lb. pack is great, so many uses to try t name, works great packed wel, and shipped super fast
Randall H. from Randys family restaurant Posted on 11/10/2011
I love this yeast, use it for all my home breadmaking, and The WebStaurant Store has the best price on it that I have been able to find! And, you only need to use 75% of this compared to active dry yeast and it goes into the recipe with the other dry ingredients - no need to proof it first!
Roberta G. Posted on 02/20/2011
This has always been the cheapest deal on yeast that I could find. I've never needed to proof it. I store it in either my refrigerator or freezer.
Tabitha L. Posted on 10/13/2010
SAF Yeast is the best for baking and you cannot beat the price for it at Webstaurant. This is the exclusive yeast of King Arthur Flour's test kitchen, yet with a much better price here at Webstaurant than they sell. I will be buying from here again and again. Am telling all my colleagues about Webstaurant.
