As bakers and home cooks alike explore the world of fermentation and dough rising, yeast takes centre stage as the unsung hero behind fluffy bread, airy pastries, and delightful desserts. While both fresh and instant yeast have been popular choices, dry yeast has gained significant attention for its numerous advantages. In this article, we will delve into the fascinating world of yeast, focusing on the benefits of using dry yeast like BFP’s Angel Yeast in your baking endeavours.

Understanding Yeast:

Yeast is a microscopic fungus that ferments sugars, producing carbon dioxide and alcohol. This process is crucial in leavening bread and creating the desired texture and structure in various baked goods. Traditionally, bakers used fresh yeast, which is a perishable product that requires careful handling and a shorter shelf life. However, the advent of dry yeast has revolutionized the way we approach baking.

Advantages of using products like Angel and Fermipan

1.     Extended Shelf Life: One of the standout features of dry yeast is its extended shelf life. Unlike fresh yeast, which has a limited lifespan and requires refrigeration, dry yeast can be stored at room temperature for an extended period. This makes it a convenient choice for both professional bakers and home cooks who may not use yeast regularly.

2.     Convenience and Ease of Use: This type of yeast is incredibly user-friendly. It does not require proofing before use, unlike fresh yeast, which needs to be dissolved in warm water to activate. This eliminates an additional step in the baking process, saving time and effort. Simply add dry yeast directly to the flour, and you're ready to go.

3.     Consistent Results: This yeast provides consistent and predictable results in terms of fermentation and dough rising. Its uniform composition ensures that each batch of yeast behaves similarly, contributing to the reliability and reproducibility of your recipes. This is especially valuable for commercial bakers and the likes of pizza chains who aim for consistency in their products.

1.     Versatility: This yeast is versatile and can be used in a variety of recipes, from basic bread and pizza dough to sweet pastries and enriched doughs. Its adaptability makes it a staple ingredient for bakers exploring a wide range of culinary creations.

2.     Cost-Effectiveness: While the initial cost of dry yeast may be slightly higher than fresh yeast, its longer shelf life and the ability to purchase in bulk contribute to cost-effectiveness in the long run. This is particularly beneficial for those who bake frequently or in larger quantities. With ample stocks of both Fermipan and Angel Yeast at BFP, you can reduce your stock levels and still be assured that you can get the product quickly.

3.     Storage and Portability: Dry yeast's stability at room temperature makes it an ideal option for those with limited refrigerator space. Additionally, its lightweight and compact packaging enhance its portability, making it a convenient choice for both home and professional kitchens.


Products like Angel yeast has undoubtedly earned its place as a reliable and convenient leavening agent in the world of baking. Its extended shelf life, ease of use, consistency, versatility, cost-effectiveness, and portability make it an advantageous choice for bakers of all levels. As we celebrate the one-year anniversary of discovering the magic of dry yeast, it's clear that this humble ingredient has become a staple in kitchens around the world, unlocking a world of possibilities for delicious and perfectly risen baked goods.
