Active Yeast 150g

Edmonds Active Yeast has been carefully grown and specially dried to maintain high fermenting power. These become active when water, heat, and flour or sugar are added.  The yeast then produces carbon dioxide gas which causes bread dough to rise.

Suitable for breadmaking, homebrewing, gingerbeer and yeast drinks.  It is naturally gluten free.

Ingredients List:

Active Dried Yeast (saccharomyces cerevisiae), salt.

Made on a production line that also produces products containing wheat, milk, soy, egg, sulphites, peanuts and tree nuts.

About This Product:
  • Replace 2 tablespoons of Edmonds Surebake Yeast with 1 tablespoon of Edmonds Active Yeast​ in breadmaking.
  • Replace 1 sachet of Edmonds Instant Dried Yeast with 1½ tablespoons of Edmonds Active Yeast.
  • Yeast works best at body temperature.  A high temperature such as from boiling water will kill the yeast and too low a temperature (like on a cold day) will cause the yeast to work slowly.
  • Edmonds High Grade Flour is recommended for use in breadmaking as it has a high protein (gluten) content which gives the dough sufficient strength to give the bread good volume and texture.
