Red Star has been bringing yeast products to the baking industry for more than 160 years.
At IBIE in Las Vegas, the company will introduce the first certified organic compressed yeast made in the US produced using ingredients that are either 95% organic or on the National Organic Program List.
The yeast will be available in five-pounds blocks with a 35-day shelf life, and it has proven to perform well in a wide variety of baked good formulas and processes, allowing bakers to make 100% organic bread, said Red Star.
