Looking to streamline your baking? With Lesaffre SAF-Instant premium yeast 1 lb. vacuum pack you can produce the perfect baked goods every time! Unlike active dry yeast, instant yeast doesn't need to be dissolved in water prior to mixing. It will also reduce mixing time by 10%-30% and proofing time from 15% to 30%. This premium yeast even allows you to reduce your yeast usage up to 30% in many recipes, while still increasing the volume of your finished product, saving you time and money! Precise measuring is always easy because this yeast is granular and free-flowing, allowing it to be measured just like other dry ingredients.

Versatile and easy to use, this instant yeast is for use in doughs with sugar levels of up to 12%, and is recommended for no-time doughs. Containing a low amount of preservatives, this yeast ensures a uniform rise with a much better oven spring than other varieties of yeast. Whether your menu includes fresh bagels, hand-tossed pizzed crust, or crisp baguettes, Lesaffre SAF-Instant premium yeast is the perfect product for a variety of baking applications.

A little goes a long way. Being a home baker I store what I don't use in the freezer and even after a year I can count on it to make excellent bread

I bought two but one of them was exposed to air. Great customer service; they refunded me. I baked two loafs of bread and i will buy again.

Very good yeast for King Arthur Lancelot high protein bread flour. I've found it just super dependable and consistent. After the first use, I won't use any other yeast. No need to proof, mix it in dry, and it seems to do very well with good clean water run thru high grade filters, around 104 degrees F. Leaves just a tiny yummy yeasty flavor, like an accent, which works with all my recipes taste wise. Top shelf product in my book.

Douglas C. from D Cook on 08/03/2021

This is the best yeast I've ever used. It does not take much yet it causes my breads and doughnuts to rise so beautifully. I keep refrigerated and it lasts indefinitely. A real value.

Bernice C. on 10/05/2020

Lesaffre SAF instant yeast is the only yeast I use when baking bread. It makes my dough rise perfectly. This package lasts forever. After I take some in a small jar for daily use, I store the rest in the freezer for freshness.

Merve C. on 08/01/2019

Just started to use the premium and noticed the raising time is less, on the other hand I got the best price for same product.

Sylvia B. from Charlottes Breakfast on 05/28/2019

This product is a gamechanger. It really speeds up the rising time of yeast breads and I've used it for whole wheat or sweet breads with much success.

Angela K. on 05/07/2019

I just tried this yeast out on a loaf of homemade bread, and it turned out great. It got more lift than what I was getting from the regular yeast from the grocery store. This definitely lives up to the "premium" name.

Jonathan S. on 04/22/2019

I've been using SAF yeast but not this premium version(?) I usually make loaves or pizza dough and it works perfect. And I keep them in fridge it lasts very long.

Stay P. on 10/23/2017

Who wouldn't want to save a lot of time in the kitchen by eliminating a step in proofing? Just throw this stuff in the flour and then add the liquid. Instant yeast has shaved at least 30 to 40 minutes off prep time for yeast breads and rolls in my bakery. And it does rise a bit faster, too. Great stuff!

Kathleen A. from Frostavenue on 05/09/2017

Excellent quality. The package was sealed well, and it was dry and fresh. By adding the SAF instant dry yeast to my dough, it only took short amount of time to rise. I could see it rise within several minutes. It's easy to use, and I am very satisfied with the result and the taste. I would definitely buy it again , and I highly recommend this yeast to other bakers. it also costs so much less than the yeast I purchased at the grocery store. A+++

Yong C. on 04/25/2017

Just made some delicious dutch oven bread with this yeast - my dough rose beautifully and crusted over nicely. So easy to use and obviously fresh and ready to go right out of the package.

Lindsie B. on 04/23/2017

This yeast will help you become an excellent baker. It works really well, and is easier to use because you don't have to dissolve it or activate it first.

Saxon M. from Saxon on 03/24/2017

Great product and a great price. We use this yeast in all our wood fired pizza crusts. We have never had a bad batch of yeast yet. Highly recommend.

Juanell P. from Powerquee Media on 09/25/2016

I love all of the Lesaffre SAF Yeasts. Quality product and great value. If you can't use a whole pound, share with a friend, or put in freezer. Thank you WebstaurantStore for making sure you always ship the freshest product.

Kim H. on 08/29/2016

Great prize and even better size. 1 lb will go a very long way for me. It is great on all the baked bread goodies. Will buy again once I run out.

Brenda M. on 11/23/2015

Best quality yeast I've used for various baking purposes - was originally recommended in standby baking book - sells for a much higher price at my local gourmet food supply.

Adrienne C. on 11/22/2015

I use this all the time for breads mixed in my bread machine - challah, pita, even english muffins - and they come out great. I even use it for pizza dough made in the food processor. There's no need to measure the temperature of the water. I store the yeast in the freezer and I never have to worry about running out. A single package goes a very long way in my kitchen.

Marjory K. on 05/03/2015

Better than other SAF. yeast . This yeast holds up very well with ice cold water, and holds well under frozen circumstances, you need to use this.
