- Red Star Active Yeast is cake yeast in a semi-dormant state. After activating it provides ultimate baking activity in all yeast dough, from low sugar to highly sweetened breads. Red Star yeast is designed for yeast-leavened bread and dough. The finished product will have the flavor, texture and consistency associated with a yeast-leavened product. We suggest soaking in lukewarm water 2-3 min. before using.
