Care & storage

For best results, store in an airtight container in the freezer for 12 months or longer. There's' no need to thaw the yeast before using.

Test kitchen tips

Sweet breads can be agonizingly slow risers. Why? Because sugar attracts water, and when it's in bread dough, it pulls water away from yeast - leaving the yeast thirsty and unable to grow. The special strain of yeast in SAF Gold is "osmotolerant" - it requires less water. So it's able to grow happily despite sugar's attempts to leave it "high and dry."
