Active Dry Yeast is the original all-natural yeast that has been used by generations of bread bakers. Active Dry Yeast provides ultimate baking activity in all yeast doughs, from low sugar to highly sweetened breads.All dry yeast types are suitable for recipes using traditional and bread machine baking methods.
Active Dry Yeast can be added directly to dry ingredients.
Use liquid temperatures of 120°F-130°F. Yeast activity may decrease if it comes into direct contact with salt or sugar. Active Dry Yeast can be dissolved in liquids before using.
Rehydrating Dry Yeast before using gives it a “good start” – the yeast feeds on the sugar allowing it to become very active and ready to work in your dough.
Water is recommended for dissolving yeast.
