SAF Instant Dried Yeast is a premium baker's yeast that is simple easy
to use. Unlike active dry yeast, this baker's yeast does not require
hydration prior to use and can be added to all but the driest of doughs.
SAF Instant Dried Yeast is more concentrated in live organisms compared
to compressed dry yeast offering fermentation power 30 to 40% higher.
Yeast is a delicate, single celled organism which catalyzes the fermentation process required in bread making. It contributes to the taste of the bread as well as making it expand and rise. This baker's yeast is a high quality, high performance yeast, developed by the world's largest and oldest yeast manufacturer, S. I. Lesaffre, in France. Instant dried yeast often allows for speedy and uniform absorption within the dough.
Dried granular or active dry yeast has virtually replaced fresh yeast;it has been freeze dried and so will keep for several months if stored in a cool, dry place, but is needs a warmer liquid than fresh yeast in which to dissolve. Never use more of this yeast than the recipe states or you will find that you have a course, sour loaf that will go stale quickly.
