Bakipan® Active Dry Yeastbakipan® Active Dry Yeast is cake yeast in a semi-dormant state. The drying process in its manufacture reduces moisture content, giving it a longer shelf life than cake yeast while retaining optimum activity. When activated, it provides ultimate baking activity in all yeast dough- low sugar to highly sweetened breads. bakipan® Active Dry Yeast is designed for yeast-leavened bread and dough. The finished product will have the particular flavor, texture and consistency associated with a yeast-leavened product.

bakipan® Active Dry Yeast is available in strips of three 8g packets and also in 113g and 198g jars and is available in Canada. Three 8g packets are equal in activity to one 2-ounce cake of yeast. One 8g packet contains approximately 1 tablespoon of yeast; the measurement will not be exact as yeast is packaged according to weight rather than volume. One 8 gram packet, or 1 tablespoon of yeast is sufficient to raise 4 cups, approximately 1 pound, of flour.

For traditional baking, bakipan® Active Dry Yeast may be hydrated in 110°-115°F liquids or mixed with other dry ingredients if liquids are warmed to 120° to 130°F.

To use bakipan® Active Dry Yeast in a bread machine, use 3/4 teaspoon of yeast for each cup of flour and have liquids at 80°F liquids. Active dry yeast is not recommended for one-hour or less bread machine cycles.
