Compressed Yeast

Compressed Yeast

Praised for its practicality and its easy use, compressed yeast is the most commonly used bakers’ yeast worldwide.

Presented in a form of extruded blocks, compressed yeast has many advantages: it is very easy to use, it crumbles directly into the mixer and lends itself to a wide variety of applications. Its compact shape limits contact with oxygen from the air, which helps to prolong its shelf life.
