Why You’ll Love It

Red Star® Active Dry Yeast is cake yeast in a semi-dormant state. The drying process in its manufacture reduces moisture content, giving it a longer shelf life than cake yeast while retaining optimum activity. When activated, it provides ultimate baking activity in all yeast dough- low sugar to highly sweetened breads. Red Star® Active Dry Yeast is designed for yeast-leavened bread and dough. The finished product will have the particular flavor, texture and consistency associated with a yeast-leavened product.

Gets the job done

This has yet to disappoint me. There are no directions for if you need an instant yeast, so if you are trying to make a quick loaf with this active dry, you need to reactivate the yeast and can do so with either a teaspoon of granulated sugar or honey and 1/4 cup warm water - let it sit for 5-10 minutes. If it foams or gets creamy, you've activated it and can go about baking, reducing your recipe's liquid need by 1/4 cup.
