Red vs. Gold Instant Yeast: What's the Difference?

Checking for Yeast Activation

If you ever doubt whether your yeast is active, simply observe your dough. Active yeast causes it to rise and expand, creating light and fluffy baked goods. Trust your senses; you'll know when your yeast is doing its job!

Perfecting Your Recipe

When it comes to the best yeast for baking bread, Scratch Gold Instant Dry Yeast stands out as a top choice. For every cup of flour in your recipe, use about 2 1/4 teaspoons of instant yeast.

Adding Sugar

Many recipes call for adding sugar to the yeast mixture. With Scratch Gold Instant Dry Yeast, there's no need for sugar when using it directly in your dough.

Turning Instant Yeast into Fresh Yeast

While fresh yeast is a great choice, you can easily substitute instant yeast by using approximately 2.5 times more instant yeast than fresh yeast in your recipe.

With Scratch Gold Instant Dry Yeast, your baking journey becomes a breeze. Whether you're making bread, pastries, or pizza dough, our product is your trusted partner in the kitchen. Say goodbye to complicated yeast activation and hello to delicious, homemade creations.

So, the next time you're wondering, "Can I use gold yeast for regular bread?" or any other yeast-related question, remember that Scratch Gold Instant Dry Yeast is here to simplify your baking adventures. Happy baking!
