Red Star Active Dry Yeast is perfect for yeast-leavened bread and doughs from low sugar to very sweet.




Red Star Active Dry Yeast is for yeast-leavened bread and doughs from low sugar to very sweet.Active Dry Yeast vs. Instant Yeast Many years ago there were key differences between the two. Today active dry yeast (ADY) and instant yeast (IY) can be used interchangeably. ADY takes longer to rise than IY.  How to Proof Active Dry Yeast: Some baking experts say that Active Dry Yeast doesn't require proofing before using. But proofing is the traditional method and it can confirm that the yeast is still alive. Dissolve it in 1/4 cup warm water (100-115 degrees F) with 1 teaspoon sugar. After 5 to 10 minutes, the mixture should foam. If it doesn't, it's best to discard.  How to Store Active Dry Yeast: Freezing is an excellent method for storing yeast. Place yeast in an airtight plastic bag or container and freeze for up to 6 months after opening. You can also store yeast in the fridge in an airtight container or bag for up to 4 months after opening.
