Active dry yeast
With its long shelf life and possibility of storage at room temperature, Lesaffre’s active dry yeast was specially designed for industrial and craft bread-making applications. Once rehydrated, this performant, efficient yeast presents the same benefits as a liquid yeast.
Benefits of active dry yeast
Thanks to its granules or spheroids form, active dry yeast has considerable bread-making qualities, especially in regions with tough climate conditions (hot and humid countries):
- remarkable stability at ambient temperature;
- long shelf life;
- perfect control over the yeast’s fermentation power;
- easy to incorporate into the mixer.
Packaging of dried yeast
- Active dry yeast is available in different packaging formats that are suitable for different modes of use: 125 and 500 g boxes, 10 and 25 kg bags, and 25 kg plastic drums.
- Lesaffre also offers 50 and 100 g packets for domestic use.
