Instant dry yeast is a live and active baker’s yeast. Dehydration is a carefully-controlled and stress-free step for the yeast cell to keep it alive and maintain its high fermenting power. Instant dry yeast is very popular with bakers for its great ease of use and its long shelf life.
What are the special characteristics of Saf-instant’s instant dry yeast?
Saf-instant was the first instant dry yeast to be launched on the market in 1973. It was created to make life easier for bakers by offering them a long-lasting, high-quality yeast.
Instant dry yeast comes in the form of fine, vacuum-packed vermicelli and brings many advantages:
- It is incorporated directly into the dough mixer, without being rehydrated.
- Its dosage is 3 times lower than that of pressed yeast.
- Its vacuum packaging promotes the stability of the fermenting power and eliminates any risk of external contamination.
Its small, dehydrated vermicelli combine performance and ease of use.
