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 ranging from 10% to 30%, making it ideal for a wide variety of sweet goods and breads. This yeast allows dough to be fermented in warmer temperatures, and ensures a uniform rise with each use.

    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.
    We love this product and brand. We use it for doughs with sugar, eggs, butter etc and it's been great. Consistent performance and good quality.
    Before i use the one that i got from the store then i try this yeast and its great for my sweet dough. Thumbs up!
    This yeast so delicious and good and come in a great quantity for a great and reasonable price. Highly recommend this deal to all who would like to save money and have there food supplies last longer.
    I've tried two of the other big name instant yeast, and they were comparable to each other. After that, I thought "yeast is yeast" and it didn't really matter what type I used. Then I tried some of this Lesaffre brand yeast. What a difference. It rises faster and larger than the previous yeasts I have used, and the results just seem more uniform. Works great in breads, sandwich rolls, pizza crusts and pastries. It might cost a bit more, but results are worth it. It's going to be hard to bring myself to finish using the other type still sitting on my shelf.
    This is my favorite yeast for making challah! It not only rises higher, but the texture is so much better than with the supermarket yeast packets. The texture of the dough makes the braiding easier and I have to make a double batch every time because my family gobbles it up. There used to be leftovers, but not anymore.
    we have been doing some baking experimenting with new recipes and we figured we might as well grab a 1lb bag, since its cheaper than the individual packets. this yeast is wonderful and it is a low cost. using it in keto diet treats for home, as well as some Japanese treats we have been working on in preparation for our upcoming party menu. this yeast is a great value
    The best dry yeast for high fat sweet breads like brioche. We've used it along side the red label and there is significant difference in the rise, taste, and texture of the end product.
    Best yeast at the lowest price for high sugar content dough. It rises beautifully, smells wonderful and makes all your baked goods turn out perfectly. Buy it!
    great yeast for sweet pastries and breads. helps with rapid raising but not over doing it. vacuum seal and easy to store. best brand I found in the US
    have been using this yeast brand for the last 18 months and have not had a bad batch of dough yet!! great pricing and great yeast.
    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.
    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 make a lot of whole wheat pizza crust and this product has preformed consistantly time after time with no problems. stays granular and easy to use
    I see significant different in the end product when I use this yeast. This is the best price that I could find. Will order again
    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!!!
    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.
    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.
    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.
