If you love baking tasty heart-healthy bread and other similar goods, you’re going to need the proper cooking ingredients for the job. And speaking of ingredients, you would require this organic yeast in order to have a nutritionally-dense, and safe-to consume product in the end.
Yeast is a one-cell organism (Latin name: Saccharomyces cerevisiae), and during its growth (it grows on sugar or starch) it alters its food into carbon dioxide and alcohol, via natural fermentation that excludes the usage of any animal or synthetic source. The carbon dioxide on the other hand, enlarges the baked edible to produce the soft, fluffy, light texture. Should you happen to look for high quality nutritional yeast, you don’t have to search anymore. Starwest Botanicals offer this certified organic yeast powder, made from carefully chosen organic strains, and lactic acid bacteria, plus nutritionally expanded by being bred in organic grains, enzymes, and pure spring water.
No additional minerals, vitamins and pH regulators have been added to this gluten-free organic yeast powder. However, it can still deliver good amounts of dietary fiber, B complex vitamins (like thiamine, pyridoxine, riboflavin, niacin, folic acid, and cobalamin) plus one third of it is protein too.
It’s recommended that you use the yeast before the expiration date, and once you open the package, store in a fridge.
Check the temperature of the water-yeast blend by using an instant read thermometer. The most optimum temperature is between 105°F to 115°F. If it’s too cold, the yeast might not activate, hence won’t rise. If it is too hot, the yeast might die, and again it won’t rise.
