Frozen Yeast – Baking Products

Frozen Yeast


Free-Flowing Frozen Yeast (FFFY) was first developed and refined by Lesaffre, allowing bakers to improve the stability and storage of frozen dough.


This yeast helps meet the growing demand for frozen products and factors in the constraints associated with long-distance logistics.


We offer a variety of frozen yeasts formulated to be suitable for various frozen dough processes.

Saf Semi-Dry Frozen Yeast

Saf Semi-dry® is an FFFY that comes in a packaging that allows for easy storage and use. This adds greater convenience and flexibility with frozen dough techniques in your baking process.


The yeast is ideal for artisan bakers, hotels, restaurants and caterers alike.


Superior performance

Saf Semi-dry® frozen yeast is specially adapted for frozen dough applications that require long shelf-life while preserving the flavour and appearance of baked goods


Better hygiene

The resealable air-tight packaging reduces contamination risks, maintaining yeast quality even with multiple use.


Greater convenience

Saf Semi-dry® can be used immediately after being taken out of the freezer. No thawing is required. The smaller pack size makes it easy to store and allows you to pour the yeast directly into the mixer easily.

Saf Semi-Dry Red Label

Suitable for all recipes without sugar or with a low level of sugar (less than 5% sugar on flour weight)

Saf Semi-Dry Gold Label

Recommended for dough with more than 5% sugar on flour weight


L’hirondelle Frozen Yeast

L’hirondelle® L.H.I.S. (Levure à Humidité Intermédiaire Surgelée or Free-Flowing Frozen Yeast) gives industrial and chain bakers greater flexibility with tailoring their offerings.


Pioneered and refined by Lesaffre, the yeast can be used for a diverse range of products including frozen pizzas, croissants, bread rolls and fresh sandwiches.


Improved dough stability during storage

Specially adapted for frozen dough applications with storage periods of more than three months,
L’hirondelle® frozen yeast retains the stability of its fermentation power and delays the start of fermentation in frozen dough.


Economical, convenient and produces high-quality results

Remaining fluid even at -20ºC, L’hirondelle frozen yeast can be used straight from the freezer. Defrosting is not required. Simply add the required amount directly into your kneading machine from the bulk pack.
