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.
    This is the only brand of yeast I will buy. I have been a Baker for years and the Lasaffre SAF yeast can't be beat. The product arrived fresh and without any breakage. It saves me money from my regular purveyor and doesn't compromise the quality
    This yeast is hard to beat. I've used this brand for years now, baking for personal use, for orders, and for farmer's market. It's so easy to use, and the price is excellent. This is a very good product, and freezes well to keep fresh until ready to be opened and used.
    It's nice to be able to buy yeast in bulk, and this is a brand that we trust. Great for making breads, desserts, bagels, etc!
    I always go for the SAF Instant Red Yeast in the 1 pound size when I need to get yeast. Yeast is expensive and the 1 pound containers go a long way.. great value. Reliable product.. I can always count on a good rise when I use SAF.
    I use this instant yeast whenever I make homemade pizza and artisan breads. It is definitely cheaper to buy the one-pound package if you do a lot of baking. I like to store the yeast in the freezer in a plastic bag. This is definitely a "must have" for my home baking needs!
    i've been using lesaffre yeast to make breads and doughs for years and it's always reliable and potent. this dry yeast can be stored in the fridge or freezer for well over a year without issue.
    This is great instant yeast, and the vacuum packaging keeps it fresh until I am ready to start using it. After opening, I keep this yeast in the fridge in an airtight container. I always have great results.
    In my opinion one can't do better than Lesaffre yeast. This product was received in perfect condition and is very fresh. If that wasn't good enough, the price can't be beat anywhere. I will buy my yeast from Webstaurantstore.com from now on.
    Great price for a great product. We use this instant yeast in our breads and our Swedish cinnamon rolls and have never been disappointed. Love never having to proof the yeast!
    I’m a home baker and I go through a lot of yeast since I make my own bread, pies, and other pastries. I prefer instant yeast because if it’s quick rise. I love that I can buy in bulk from Webstauarant and save money in the process.
    This is my go-to yeast for bread! webstaurantstore.com has the best price of any place I've checked, and always ship fresh batches. I've never had a loaf fail with this yeast. I've bought this multiple times and will continue to do so.
    I am super happy with this yeast so far! I stored in the freezer the moment I got it. have already used it for a couple of breads and even a babka! Worked well.
    This is a fantastic price on a 1LB bag of SAF Instant. Red is great for standard duty baking (Gold is tailor made for higher sugar doughs). I've kept repackaged bags in the fridge, and have never had any issues with potency or consistency. I'm a home baker, so I don't have experience with commercial production or scale - but I do have experience with longevity, and SAF hasn't fallen flat after prolonged storage.
    I appreciated that this was vacuum packed when it arrived to preserve freshness. The yeast works just fine as yeast should. A great price as well.
    This is my favorite brand of yeast I normally pay over six dollars in other places. This is a great value it is twice less the amount I normally pay here at the Websturant store thank you
    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.
    This instant yeast is a great addition to your commercial and home kitchen. It makes a great tool in your baking arsenal and works better than regular yeast.
    It's really nice you can buy a single pack of this one pound vacuum sealed dry yeast to try the 4 x 4 case works good can I get a full case nowv
