Instant yeast is a type of baker’s yeast made by drying fresh yeast. During this process some of the living yeast cells die off and stick to the remaining ones, forming little granules with a protective layer that increases the shelf life.
How to Use Instant Dried Yeast
Instant yeast can be added directly to dry ingredients - there is no need to proof it in water unless you’ve had the yeast for a very long time and worry that it might have lost its potency.
If your recipe calls for quick rise or bread machine yeast, use instant yeast measure for measure to bake your bread. If you need to convert a recipe that calls for fresh or dry active yeast, use a half teaspoon of yeast per cup of flour.
Did I mention the aroma it gives to bread... amazing!
