Lesaffre has many varieties of instant yeast available. Each is designed for specific baking applications with the ability to rapidly rehydrate when added to the dough.

SAF-Instant® Yeast Red Label is a granular free-flowing yeast for use in doughs with sugar levels of up to 12% (flour). Red Label is best for short-time fermentation processes.


1. Provides uniform fermentation throughout
    your baking system.
2. Vacuum packaging ensures freshness, consistency,
    and minimal activity loss until opened.
3. Provides tolerance to higher dough temperatures.
4. Improves machinability.
5. Free-flowing properties make it as easy to scale
    and meter as other dry ingredients.
6. Unopened, SAF-Instant® Yeast packages need
    no refrigeration.
7. Warmer dough temperatures are preferred while
    using SAF-Instant® Yeast; this decreases the need to
