Instant Dry Yeast

Saf-Instant Range



Instant Dry Yeast (IDY) is a dry yeast that looks like tiny particles of vermicelli and is typically vacuum-packed. Its small particle size means that IDY absorbs liquid rapidly and does not need to be hydrated before mixing into flour. IDY is particularly useful in break-making conditions or with products that do not suit fresh or compressed yeast options.
