Featured Ingredients

Active Dry Yeast

What is active dry yeast? It is a form of dried yeast that is made from compressed baker’s yeast. The drying process removes the water, while the compression process flattens and ruptures the cells. This increases the surface area and allows more contact with the air, which helps to activate the yeast.

Active dry yeast can be stored for long periods of time and can be reactivated by adding it to warm water. It is commonly used in baking applications.
