saf instant gold

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.


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.

Rehydrating Not 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.

Product Description
