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.

Did what was expected

Effective yeast for baking. I try to achieve natural yeast from the bacteria in the air but this is a good form of yeast when I have to buy it
