GENERAL USAGE INFORMATION
See our Guide to baking with yeast for more information on all bread-making steps.
FOR TRADITIONAL USE — STAND MIXER or HAND-KNEADING
Organic Instant Yeast may be incorporated by the Dry Blend or Rehydration Method
DRY BLEND METHOD
If your recipe instructions do not include this rehydration step, remember to decrease the total liquids in the recipe by 1/2 cup to account for the liquid you used to activate the yeast.
FOR BREAD MACHINE USE
Be good to your yeast, and it will perform well in your bread! Don’t forget that yeast is a living organism, and its freshness and shelf life are dependent on how the yeast is stored. Dry yeast will lose its leavening power if exposed to air, moisture or heat, even when it is still in a sealed jar or package. Learning the correct way to store your yeast will keep it fresher longer.
SHELF LIFE INFORMATION
The yeast packets are flushed with nitrogen at the time of packaging to remove oxygen.
For best results, use the yeast prior to the best if used by date stamped on the package. This date is 2 years from the date the yeast was packaged.

Organic Instant Yeast is a living organism and must be handled properly to ensure optimum performance. Never expose yeast to high temperatures during storage or use.
Store packages at room temperature, away from heat sources. Dry yeast may also be stored in the refrigerator or freezer.
Dry yeast may also be stored in the refrigerator or freezer. Prior to use, take out only the number of packets you plan to use and bring to room temperature for about 20 – 30 minutes.
If you are unsure about the activity of your yeast, test it using our Yeast Activity Test.
If you have yeast remaining in an opened packet, fold the opening over itself to the level of the yeast (to keep it airtight). Secure it with tape or a clip. Refrigerate or freeze and use within four weeks.
