  • What buyers say about SAF Instant Yeast Red for Baking Cake, Bread and Dough

    I have been using this instant yeast for a couple of months now and I have to say that it has made a huge difference in the texture of my bread and the taste of my bread has been pretty good as well as the fact that I am able to buy a decent amount of instant yeast

    I assumed that "instant" bread was inferior because I never had to proof my yeast before mixing it with the flour, salt and water.

    I am keeping a small amount in the fridge and the rest in the freezer to save money, since I used to buy tiny packets from other brands.

    I used to buy a pound of yeast on Amazon, but since there wasn't any on the shelves, I decided to just use it to make buns and loaves.

    SAF yeast is one of the most important ingredients in home made bread and yeast was hard to find, but I ordered a pound on Amazon and found it to stay fresh and work well.
