The rise of baking during the past weeks has moved our yeast to supermarket shelves in some areas in Canada and the US. INSTAFERM®01 Instant Dry Yeast (450 g pack) has been on the market for many decades for industrial bakers. Now, to meet the huge consumer demand for yeast, consumers are buying INSTAFERM® 01 for their home baking.

Some features about INSTAFERM®01:

• Specially formulated for baking
• Vacuum packed to preserve its quality. This creates a solid pack; the yeast is free flowing once the pack is opened.
• Mix directly with the dry ingredients
• Gluten-free | suitable for vegetarian and vegan diets | Kosher certified | Bio-checked Non-GMO certified

The small yeast sachets usually sold in retail stores are approx. 8 to 10 g (approx. 2 teaspoons or 1 tablespoon) and are recommended for 3 cups of flour (approx. 450 to 500 g).
