Dry Yeast


Saf-Instant® is recognized as the world’s leading brand in the instant yeast market, thanks to its many benefits where quality and performance are concerned.


Saf-Instant® yeast is suitable for all kinds of bread-making processes. Simple to use, Saf-Instant® does not need to be rehydrated like active dry yeast and offers a fermentation power 30 to 40 percent higher than the latter. It can be added directly into the mixer at the beginning of the mixing process or sprinkled on top of the dough when mixing begins.

Two grades are available: Bakers choose between the two grades according to the usage conditions (the addition of sugar, fat, colorings 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 CenterTM is available to respond to any specific requirements that clients may have.
