Baker’s Yeast

Baker’s Yeast Definition

Baker’s yeast is a compressed form of yeast usually found in small cubes wrapped in foil. It is also available in larger blocks for commercial use.

Baker’s yeast is becoming less common due to its perishable nature.

Here’s the Baker’s Yeast We Recommend

Red Star Fresh Yeast (Baker's Yeast)

Cake Yeast, also known as wet, fresh, or compressed yeast, has been used for decades by veteran bakers and is still popular today. 

Cake yeast is very perishable, requiring constant refrigeration to retain its freshness and activity. We recommend using it within 10 days of purchase.
