This yeast is a great deal. I am new to bread baking and yeast is so over priced in the store, I am glad I found these 1lb packages. I have seen these packages at much higher cost from other popular online retailers. The WEBstaurant Store has the best prices.

I haven't actually used the yeast yet, as I am waiting for my old one to finish. i do like the fact that it is air tight sealed when it got to me.

I love Lesaffre yeast. I love this kind but, I must admit I do prefer the Lesaffre Premium Instant brand yeast. This yeast is a great yeast if you prefer active dry yeast. Lesaffre makes the best yeast.

This is my favorite brand of active dry yeast. It dissolves quickly when placed in warm water for proofing. The end results it produces for baked goods is wonderful!

Have used this yeast for years. Works great in any application. Vacuum packed bags store perfect even after opening. Every time I get this product it’s fresh, fresh, fresh which means it works it’s best. Thank you

This is the smart way to buy Yeast. This item works just as well as the stuff I would buy from the local market and the price is really great. We use it to make home made bread and baked goods.

Love Red Star Yeast. They are very forgiving and always work well! We use it for sticky bun and croissants. They always turn out great.

Jiwon B. from Brekkie Bake on 05/18/2019

For the past 35 years i have been using fresh yeast for our pizza and pasta dough, decided to give this a shot after failing years ago and i'm sorry i didn't switch earlier, no difference.

Andrew M. on 04/13/2019

Such an economical way to buy yeast! It is very active yeast, and I have used it to make everything from donuts to homemade bread.

Julia B. on 10/08/2018

This is by far superior quality yeast. Just proof for ten minutes and it’s absolutely perfect. The only yeast I will ever use because it’s that good!

Nina P. on 08/30/2018

Great active dry yeast. This is the best price for active dry yeast that I have found so far. Stores for weeks since it is vacuum sealed so I always keep backups on my shelves.

Kathryn V. on 07/03/2018

This bulk package of yeast has an awesome price point and saves me money being able to buy a bulk bag. This yeast makes a great tasting bread.

Ruth F. on 06/26/2018

Great product have ordered several of these and it works great in our pizza dough mix. Last for a while easy to store and a great price

Jamie L. from Maddy's Pizza Palace on 06/26/2018

A quality affordable choice for all of your yeasted products. This item blooms quickly and has a wonderfully rich aroma and flavor. The one pound size is perfect for keeping smaller amounts of yeast open ensuring that the yeast is always fresh when working in higher volume establishments.

Amber L. from Sugar Lane Bakery on 05/17/2018

Yeast brand that you can trust - perfect for bread, pastry and pizza crust! use this yeast for all of my baking applications and it always works consistently.

Diane S. from Devoted2doilies on 04/26/2018

I've bought a lot of yeast in my time but never came across a more fresh and lively yeast product than this company. I will buy again soon.

Francisco D. from FRANK DIEGUEZ on 04/12/2018

This worked great. Tested it immediately after opening and the yeast sprung to life(it worked well). amazing that this 1 lb package costs the same as a 4 oz package in the store

Darien M. on 03/10/2018

This yeast is SUCH a good deal compared to the individual packets you find at the grocery store! It works great and it stays fresh for a long time too, as long as you store it in a cool, dry place.

Olivia H. on 01/15/2018

Very much like size for price and does better than some name brand yeast. Will buy more later. Friend also tried some and now she is ordering from this website.
