The journey to baking your freshly-made, crispy golden-crusted loaf begins with quality yeast

As bakers, we know the disappointment of cutting into a freshly baked loaf and finding it dense and barely risen. Hours mixing, kneading and shaping dough simply wasted. That’s why we made SAF-INSTANT™ instant dry yeast, because we understand the need for quality ingredients for a successful bake.

Quick Acting

Yeast is what brings the dough to life. SAF-INSTANT™ shortens the rise time while still allowing deep complex flavours to develop. Nothing beats the satisfaction of making a loaf which tastes as good as it looks.

No Rehydrating Required

Our SAF-INSTANT™ yeast is extruded in tiny particles that can be directly mixed into the dough. Due to its small size, it does not need to be rehydrated in water prior to using, saving you an extra step when you bake.


Unlike active dry yeast, you can combine our instant yeast directly with dry ingredients when forming a dough. Every time you use SAF-INSTANT™, you are simplifying your baking process and guaranteeing more consistent results.


SAF-INSTANT™ Red is a premium instant dry yeast product created with bakers in mind.

Derived from selected yeast strains and specific industrial processes, our product reduces the dough proofing time compared to active dry yeast while ensuring the full development of complex flavours obtained from yeast fermentation.

So whether you are an artisanal pastry chef or a home baker, you can be assured of quality with SAF-INSTANT™ Red.

SAF-INSTANT™ Red is best used for low-sugar doughs containing 0% to 5% sugar by weight of flour. Ideal uses include pizza dough, bagels and traditional French bakes like baguettes.
