Instant Dry Yeast


Our bread and butter recommandation at Elf Wing Discount Warehouse. It is sometimes referred to as bakers yeast or active dry yeast. It's made by removing the water in live yeast and grinding it into fine granules. 



The biggest myth surrounding active dry yeast is that it needs to be "proofed" by dissolving it in warm water with a pinch of sugar; if it foams and bubbles, it's alive, active, and ready to be used. This is unnecessary, active dry yeast is produced in a such a way that it can be added directly to the bread dough with the dry ingredients.


So then what's the difference between active dry and instant yeast? "Instant is a slightly different strain, so it produces a bit of a different flavor," But "frankly, you can use them exactly the same way." In other words, there's no need to buy both; buy one and stick with it.

We recommend Angel Instant Dry Yeast (Sugar Tolerant) 500g and Angel Instant Dry Yeast (Low sugar) 500g for their ability to create foam and bubbles quickly. They are the most cost effective options to pizza making, bread making, dim sims and buns.
