Non-Organic Fresh Yeast

Non-Organic Fresh Yeast

Quick links: ExtrasYeast

Fresh yeast is a living micro-organism which ferments with the natural sugars in flour. (Please Note: we do not despatch live yeast on a Friday)

For a 500g loaf you will need on average 10g of fresh yeast but it will depend on the recipes you use.

Despatch of Fresh Yeast

We do not despatch live yeast on a Friday since it would die a slow and lingering death in the courier's depot over the weekend. If you place an order on a Friday which includes live yeast, please allow for the fact that your order will not be despatched until the following Monday.


It should look firm and moist with a cream colour. If it is dry then it is stale. Fresh yeast has a very short life of up to 3 weeks, it is advised to use it at its freshest for it to produce the best results. It can be stored in the fridge if it is going to be used within a few days.

Longer term storage

If you are wishing to store it for a longer period of time it can also be stored in the freezer, wrapped in cling film. Bread loaf results won't be as good as non-frozen yeast, and you may need to increase the amount of defrosted yeast used compared to fresh yeast which hasn’t been frosted.
