Our Natural Dried Active Bread Yeast does not contain a high level of gluten. It is often mixed with all-purpose flour or bread flour to make yeast breads. It can be a better substitute than white flour in similar proportions, sift the flour a couple of times to incorporate more air into the dough.
Dissolve active bread yeast in ¼ cup warm (100-110˚F) water before using. Best to use a thermometer to check temperature. Stir in 1 teaspoon sugar and waiting 10 minutes for “proofing” (no long necessary for today’s modern production and packaging to check if yeast is active). The mixture should foam and double in volume. Add to other ingredients according to recipe instructions. For knead and shape, let it rise until double and then send to bake. Do not use in recipes that uses Rapid Rise yeast (the yeast won’t dissolve properly, and water is too hot). May be a substitute for fresh cake yeast.
