Excellent ORGANIC baking yeastJun 20, 2009
By J. Preston
I bought my first five pound bag of this from my local organic health food store.
I am still using it after a few years. I live at high altitude so I need to boost the yeast content of bread when I bake for myself.
This is an excellent baking yeast. Although this is not advertised as organic, it IS organic and makes an excellent baking yeast, even for rye breads and honey whole-wheat.
I also add about a tablespoon of malted barley flour for heavier breads and it makes fine loaves. Barley Malt Powder, 1 lb.
Fresh and effectiveFeb 17, 2014
I wish that this were packaged better when it shipped, I had the same experience as other reviewers of the bag leaking from the bottom when it came - there were at least a few teaspoons of yeast rolling around in the box because the bottom of the bag isn't sealed completely. BUT the yeast itself smells fresh and delicious and it's been working very well; my bread is rising, and that's the point, right? I bought this yeast because it's the only one I could find that was free of other ingredients - it's JUST yeast. I poured the yeast into Mason jars and put it in cold storage, I'm hopeful it will stay fresh. We don't buy bread, I bake bread every week so it shouldn't take me too long to get through 5lb! I was happy to find this.
like others, yes it leaks at the bottomJan 20, 2015
Ok, like others, yes it leaks at the bottom. The amount that did didn't amount to a teaspoon (that's including what leaked out and what was wasted trying to get it out of the bag and into another container). If that might detour, ther is always those high dollar " three packs of yeast" at the grocery.
Lol, ya right.
look it makes great bread! and that's its purpose.
dead yeastNov 03, 2010
I love this yeast, but when I got it the yeast was old and dead. I had to go out and buy a product I really didn't want to get my bread done... I really wish there was a better way to get good yeast.
No preservatives or flowing agents!Mar 02, 2014
This yeast creates beautiful smooth dough. I am sensitive to chemicals and preservatives and this yeast allows me to make and eat my own bread again.
