Saf-Instant® Gold, by Lesaffre, is a granular ready-to-use, free-flowing, instant dry yeast for use in doughs with higher sugar levels (10 – 30% Baker’s Percent). Saf-Instant® is also highly effective as a general-purpose instant yeast for all types of dough and bakes, meaning it's a very versatile staple for your pantry.

Also available as a bulk 10kg bakers pack.

Sugar and salt make regular yeasts less effective and slows down the fermentation process, this is something that doesn't happen with Lesaffre Saf-Instant® Gold osmotolerant yeast.

Great to use in all type of bakes and bread, including croissants, danish pastries, variety breads, hearth breads, sweet breads, sweet doughs and donuts. 

Saf-Instant® Gold provides 10 – 20% more activity in doughs with high sugar levels, where normal non-osmotolerant yeasts would struggle with the higher sugar levels.

This osmotolerant yeast is more resistant to preservatives and provides uniform fermentation throughout your baking system. Provides tolerance to higher dough temperatures

Vacuum packaging ensures freshness, consistency and minimal activity loss until opened

Improves machinability and can reduce mixing time 10 – 30%, compared to compressed yeast

Warmer dough temperatures are preferred while using Saf-Instant Gold; this decreases the need to cool doughs to maintain proper fermentation.
