Lesaffre Red Star bakers active dry yeast 1 lb. vacuum pack can be used in all yeast-leavened goods, making it a versatile option for any bakery, pizzeria, or restaurant! The airtight vacuum packaging helps to extend this yeast's already lengthy shelf life by keeping moisture out. When you're ready to use it, simply dissolve the yeast in warm water before adding it into your ingredient mixture!

Yeast 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 active dry yeast is perfect for making pizza crust, round loaves, or long "French-style" breads.

    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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
    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.
    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.
    The yeast is well packaged, good quality and very inexpensive. Mine arrived fresh, with well over a year of life in the yeast, so it won't go bad quickly, either. Red star is a trusted brand, which is always a bonus.
    I’m hapoy I made this purchase. The price is great for this size bag. I make a lot of different doughs daily and I still have a lot of yeast left.
    This is a great price for 2 pounds of yeast. Much better than buying those tiny little packets at the grocery store! It works well in recipes.
    Great high performing yeast at an amazing price. I eventually split it into small 4oz glass jars and freeze all but one at a time.
    We use yeast quite regularly and I was surprised to find this much yeast at such a great price! We'll definitely be buying more soon!
    It's yeast. It works the way it should. It smells great. I haven't had any problems with it. So I would recommend and buy again.
    I make so many different kinds of dough on a regular enough basis to justify needing this much yeast. Pizza dough, cinnamon rolls and other pastries, dinner roll and bread dough, you name it. This is a necessity.
    Great price on this yeast! Didn't realize Webstaurant carried this. Much less expensive than the big box store I normally purchase from. Will buy again!
    I normally buy the small packets of this yeast. I can't believe I can get this amount of it for this little amount. I am completely amazed.
    I bought this for personal use. Homemade bread is a staple at my house. So far it works great. I hope that it doesn't expire before I use it all, but even if i don't get all the way through it, financially it will still be worth it over the cost at the local stores.
    Great product! Arrived exactly as described, nicely vacuum-sealed. We will continue to order this through Webstaurant - we never knew they carried items like this!
    This yeast is well packaged and is an excellent choice for our baking goods. We really appreciate the quality it provides. Came active and fresh!
    I came across bakers yeast while ordering other items from this website. The price is unbelievably low for a pound of yeast. I used to make pizza dough and it the dough was delicious. I will definitely order this again!
