    Love this yeast! I just changed to saf yeast recently, and chose the gold over the red because it is meant more for sweet doughs. It rose fast, and the end product was a night and day difference from using fleischmanns instant. The texture of my cinnamon rolls is like a cloud. light, fluffy, perfect. And price is three dollars cheaper than what I was paying locally. Highly recommend!

    This is an excellent product with outstanding performance. Vacuum packed to ensure freshness. I liked how the expiration date was about two years from the date purchased.

    Use this yeast for making my donuts! I used to use the wet yeast but have since changed to the instant Lesaffre! Works wonderful! Highly recommend! Donuts have never been better!

    This yeast makes a great dutch oven bread! When i mix all the ingredients together and let my dough rise, it always gets very full and airy making for a a beautiful, round loaf.

    If you are making sweet dough, this is the best yeast to use. The pricing is so much cheaper than anywhere else. This is a top quality yeast. I won’t use anything else. You shouldn’t either.

    This yeast is incredible! Look at the bloom on it! I will never buy another yeast.

    I use this to bake up sweetbreads and it works so much better than regular yeast. I tried a sweet dough with regular yeast and it rose half as much as when I used this yeast!

    Lesaffre SAF-Instant 1 lb. Vacuum Packed Yeast we are working on a project for mushroom coultivation the first step is the yeast starter culturing mushrooms is sometimes aided by the use of yeast and I'm excited about using this to see if it will boost the process

    I love all of the Lesaffre SAF Yeasts. Thank you WebstaurantStore for making sure you always ship the freshest product. I have purchased yeast from the grocery and my bread products rise but they do not rise as well as they do with Lesaffre! The value is fabulous here!!! Since I don't cook bread every day, I share my yeasts with friends.

    French bread's best friend. This gold label yeast is perfect for a busy baker as there's no need to bloom this yeast. I love it. The results are awesome.

    We don't use a lot of yeast so I was not sure if I was going to like this product and then be stuck with a lot of it. Well, it's great. Works really well and saved us quite a bit. Good Choice!!!

    from Moon Rocks, Inc. Posted on

    This is beautiful yeast! It gives a lovely rise to all my breads. This is an amazing price for a great product. I do wish the bag resealed, but it is just as easy to put it into a resealable container.

    from Sugar Buff Posted on

    I usually get this from my local restaurant supply store for a much higher price. So glad to find it here. The SAF yeast is the best one.

    from Sweet Treats by Sonia Posted on

    I chose the lesaffre gold as webstaurant has a great price on them, and this yeast is great for cakes and specialty sweets. reacts better to sugar compared to regular bread yeast

    Not only is this brand reliable, this particular type is perfect for osmotolerant doughs - think sweet doughs or doughs with less liquids like croissants. Another bonus is it's fast-acting and requires less yeast than active dry yeast. I used this for Belgian Waffles and they were incredible. Best price online for this hard-to-find product.

    I love this yeast and the price here cannot be beat. I use it for both sweet dough and regular breads - works great on both and keeps well.
