SAF GOLD YEAST for sweet doughs

cakebaker | Dec 11, 2013 02:17 PM

Just noticed that the "instant yeast" carried in the refrigerated bulk section at Rainbow Grocery is SAF GOLD. To my knowledge they are only ones selling it retail other than KAF mail order. Since it is designed for high sugar doughs (sweet breads, etc) as well as high acid like sourdough I thought I'd pass it on. It can also be used in regular bread recipes but doesn't have the problem with high sugar recipes as does other yeast. It was just labeled "instant yeast" but I saw a package on the shelf as well behind it so I asked about it. They didn't know it was different so they are going to change the label so people know.
