Saf-Instant Dry Yeast – Baking Products

Saf-Instant Range

Instant Dry Yeast


Typically vacuum-packed, Instant Dry Yeast (IDY) is a dry yeast that resembles tiny particles of vermicelli. Because of its small particle size, IDY absorbs liquid rapidly and does not need to be hydrated before mixing into flour.

Able to be stored and used at room temperature, IDY is a feasible option for bakers not using fresh or compressed yeast.
