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 instant dry 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 instant dry yeast is perfect for making delicious bagels, croissants, donuts, and more.

    This is a reliable yeast. It has lasted in my refrigerator for over a year without loosing it's quality. I use it for breads and pizzas in my bread machine and for dough I mix by hand.

    Works great every time I make great bread with this yeast and a great deal compared to buying those darn packets. I use mine for home use.

    We like this Lesaffre yeast because it cuts a significant time bread making. We use this when making pastries like this pecan cinnamon coffee cakes. Makes the dough light and soft.

    If you want to buy in bulk but not use the product instantly then this is for you. Comes smartly packaged in vacuum sealed bags to ensure the yeast is not ruined. An excellent buy.

    Great price on instant yeast! I ran out and didn't have time to shop at my normal supplier so I just added this on to my order! Works great!

    from KMM Posted on

    Any discerning baker is likely to be using Lesaffre SAF-Instant Red Dry Yeast. It's a very reliable yeast that always brings consistent results. 1 pound is more than it looks like when you get it as it expands the second you open it.

    from Home Use Posted on

    As a home baker who often uses sourdough instead of commercial yeast, it's taken me a while to work my way through this pound of yeast. I keep it in the freezer in a mason jar and the batch I purchased in 2011 is still going strong. I proof it every time but don't know why I bother, it's still fully active and producing great loaves that perform to standard expectations (i.e., dough doubles in volume in an hour).

    This yeast is great. We use it for all our homemade artisan pizza's as well as our fresh baked breads. Very pleased with the quality.

    from Big Bear Lodge Posted on

    Great yeast to use if you need product to rise quickly. I was not sure it would work that way but it sure does. I am leaning towards using this yeast all the time.

    from Robin Huston Posted on

    Lesaffre instant yeast is a great buy. The package arrived with a great seal and the yeast was very fresh. We have baked several loafs with this yeast and they have all come out great.

    This is my favorite brand of yeast. Love the big package and it stores great in the freezer. The rise is very nice too. Will always buy this.
