Two grades are available:

saf-instant Red:
For non-sweet or low-sweetness doughs (from 0 to 10% sugar as a proportion of the flour weight)

saf-instant Gold:
For sweet dough varieties (with a sugar content in excess of 5% of the total flour weight)

Bakers choose between the two grades according to the special usage conditions (the addition of sugar, fat, colourings or preservatives, etc.) and the production processes employed (temperatures, baking times, etc.) for the recipe concerned.  A team of baking technicians from the Lesaffre Baking Center is available to respond to any specific requirements that clients may have.
