Saf-Gold Instant Osmotolerant Yeast 500g or 10kg Pack
The recognised international reference instant yeast for high sugar recipes (where the sugar content is above 5% - also useful as a general purpose instant yeast), supplied in a 500g or 10kg vacuum pack and made using selected non-GM strain cultured on natural GM-free substrates (The 10kg packs is a single 10kg vacuum pack). The presence of sugar inhibits yeast by drying it out through osmosis. This yeast has been developed to cope with the drying action of sugar. (This drying action is why honey doesn't go off: any unwanted bacteria are dried out and killed).
This yeast starts working immediately on contact with flour/sugar/water mixes and relishes high sugar conditions.
Once opened the packs must be folded/clipped to minimise ingress of air and moisture and kept refrigerated.
Ingredients: yeast (saccharomyces cerevisae), emulsifier: sorbitan monostearate (E491), flour treatment agent: ascorbic acid (E300).
