Thanks for a great product! I enjoy using this in gluten-free items such as your “Gluten Free – Butter Pecan Supreme”! I hope to win one of the Rowe Pottery Loaf Pans and look forward to trying out your “Gluten Free Paleo Sandwich Bread (Grain-Free).”


I recently picked up a 3 pack of your instant yeast and thought for fun I would give it a go with my two children. We baked 3 loaves of bread and a pizza crust. We got the recipes from your website and were blown away at how good our results were! At a comparable cost to cheap store bread the quality and flavor of our homemade bread is unbeatable and we are hooked! Thanks for the online recipes. I’m sure they’ll come in handy!

Thank you for teaching me how to make bread. Your Quick yeast and lovely recipes on your website has overcome my fear of baking bread. I can’t believe how easy and fun I have found bread baking to be. Thanks!

Jo Ellen A, California

I’ve learned my lesson. I bought “the other brand” of yeast because it was on sale. My bread didn’t rise nearly as well as it does with Red Star. I should have known better!! I really thought that there wasn’t a difference, but there is! I’m used to being complimented on my baking, so I’m going back to Red Star! Sorry I left, even if it was just for a short time!

Carol P, Ohio

Recently, I started to bake my own bread. On one of my trips to the store, they were out of the yeast brand I have bought since I was a kid, Fleishmann’s. So, I tried Red Star. I was really impressed with how well the yeast responded. On another trip, I bought Fleishmann’s and it just didn’t seem as active as the Red Star. Guess what, I’m now buying Red Star. I love your product and how active the yeast is, much more than the old Fleishmann’s. I’ve even recommended your product to others. Keep up the good work.

‘SAF’ is the only kind of yeast I use anymore. So much easier and faster!! I teach bread making classes, and I always recommend it. It is awesome!

Kara C, Utah

Thanks for providing so many great recipes on the Red Star Yeast website – Red Star Yeast makes my bread maker recipes rise like no other yeast 🙂  Red Star Yeast Rocks!!

Cindi, Wisconsin

I have just finished using your cake yeast in a holiday bread recipe that was handed down to me the fourth generation. Your product helped me make the best holiday bread in many years. I just wanted you to know that as a steady user of the “other” yeast I will now look out for your yeast. TY.

Mary K, Pennsylvania

I’ve been baking away with your yeast and I love it to pieces. My challah bread never tasted so good.

Paddy H, Virginia

I love your yeast, we use it every week to make all our dough items, from bread to pizza dough to sweet rolls, keep up the great job

Donna R, Texas

I absolutely LOVE your highly active yeast.  I make sandwich bread at least once a week, sometimes twice a week to cut down on our grocery bill and the bread ALWAYS rises perfectly.  Great consistency in your product.  Truly awesome!!!!

Jenna H, Illinois

I LOVE your yeast, it works great and is convenient.

Tabitha E, Illinois

I want to compliment you on your wonderful yeast. It makes my rolls and breads rise perfectly every time! As a newlywed, I love baking for my husband and Red Star yeast helps me do so successfully every time. Thanks again for a great product!

Kristin W, Indiana

Love Love your product.  Have stopped using commercial  baked bread all together.  My children (all 8 of them) love the taste of  homemade breads.  We also enjoy the bonding of making it together.

Kiersten D, Missouri

I just tried your new Platinum yeast which I got as a free sample and it is wonderful. Made some bagels with it and they turned out excellent, better than any I have made before with excellent rising.

Jo Ann R, New York

I saw Platinum yeast in my grocery store, and thought I’d give it a try.  Holy Cow is it good! My bread is 3 times bigger than it used to be! I didn’t change anything except my yeast and I’m so impressed!!

Sarah K, Ohio

I’ve been baking since 1975 (yikes) – when I ‘sailed’ my first loaf of French bread off my front porch since I’d spent all day making it and it turned out about 3/4″ high (there were no instructions as to what “form a loaf” meant!) Since then I regularly bake sourdough bread, whole wheat loaves and potato rolls. At Christmas time I bake Finnish Pulla bread and a Swedish Tea Rings as gifts. For years I used -the other yeast-until about 5 years ago when suddenly the dough wasn’t rising properly. That’s when I discovered Red Star Yeast and did a comparison test. Red Star bubbled up twice the size as the ‘F’ brand. I even contacted the ‘F’ people to ask what had changed….. no response. I love Red Star Yeast- even buy the volume package when I find it at Costco. Thank you Red Star people!

I love that you offer larger amounts of yeast than the 1/4 ounce packets. I buy a pound bag about once a year, and I just love having plenty of yeast for whenever I feel like baking. I store it in jars in the refrigerator, and have never had any die on me (Not even the bit I left in the bag for 2 years!) You have a first-rate product.

It’s so handy to have the right amount called for in a recipe, which is sometimes more or less than a quarter ounce. And I love that it is so thrifty to buy a pound at a time.

I would recommend that any fairly active baker buy a pound at a time, and store it in jars in the fridge. You could share with a friend or two if you do not bake that often, but Red Star yeast lasts a long time, well past the use by date, if kept cold. I know I bake more bread now that I do not have to wonder if I have any little red-star packets kicking around the cupboard.

Thank you for what has become a real staple in our kitchen.

Orla Quirk

Yes I love this yeast very much. Stocked up on it when I went to the store because the store is not that close to me. Wish it was sold in more stores. But I have to say my bread was a big hit with the family. Quit making bread some years ago because it was so time consuming. But this is the greatest yeast, now can make & bake bread in one morning or afternoon instead of 2 days. Thanks for the wonderful recipes also.

Linda Wood

I only recently started using Red Star Yeast for making and baking breads and other baked goodies. I had gotten praise for the biscuits I made for Thanksgiving using your yeast. Right now, my daughter and I are using the yeast to make the yeast pie crust. I’ll let you know how the mini pies turn out.

Nova Kane

Have been yeast baking for years, and using “the other one”, since that is what is available to this area. But recently, not happy, and found that Red Star Yeast is the way to always have a good rise, no fallen bread once it’s in the oven,and no wasted ingredients and time!!!! I love to make baked goods with yeast, but wish all stores in this area sold Red Star Yeast!!!!

Kathleen Colarusso

This year I am going to try candied fruit in my hot buns. Love my Red Star Yeast recipes!

Aa Hertzog

I recently found my great grandmother’s recipe for cinnamon rolls. This is an old family recipe because I am 63 years old. The very first line calls for Red Star Yeast…it is underlined penciled in it says “no substitutes”. 100 plus years later I am able to make the recipe just like my great grandmother did!
