Provides uniform fermentation throughout your baking system. Vacuum packaging ensures freshness, consistency, and minimal activity loss until opened.
Provides tolerance to higher dough temperatures. Warmer dough temperatures are preferred while using SAF-Instant« Yeast; this decreases the need to cool doughs to maintain proper fermentation. Can reduce mixing time 10% to 30%, compared to compressed yeast.
Store unopened packages at room temperature in a dry location. Recommended shelf life for unopened packages is two years from date of manufacture. Once opened, I keep mine in the freezer.
Red Star« Active Dry Yeast is a special culture of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The moisture is removed in such a way that cell viability and leavening power are retained. This results in a granular form of yeast designed to be rehydrated before use.
Red Star« Active Dry Yeast can be used in all yeast-leavened goods with either straight or sponge doughs. It is normally applied in a ratio of 40% to 50% of compressed yeast weight requirements, depending on the sugar content and type of dough. Active dry yeast should be rehydrated with a minimum of 3.5 to 4.0 times its weight in water at 38-43║C. (100-110║F.).
