Our range of yeasts are carefully selected to ensure optimum performance.

Product Description
Instant Dry Yeast (IDY) A biological leavening agent with a fine texture. No rehydration of the yeast is required, with a stronger fermentation power than Active Dry Yeast. Up to three times less IDY are required than compressed yeast to achieve the same results.
Active Dry Yeast Biological leavening agent which is activated by rehydration at a temperature between 35° C and 38° C. Once rehydrated, it has the same benefits as liquid yeast. The fermentation power is lower than that of IDY, and the granules larger with a two year shelf life.
All-purpose Baking Powder Chemical leavening agent made from bicarbonate and a weak acid. Used in applications where fermentation flavours are undesirable or where the batter lacks the strength to hold the gas bubbles inside for more than a few minutes.
Sodium Bicarbonate Chemical leavening agent much stronger than baking powder. Note that an acid needs to be in the recipe to react with the sodium bicarbonate (alkali) to release CO₂. Used in applications where fermentation flavours are undesirable or where the batter lacks the strength to hold the gas bubbles inside for more than a few minutes.
