So, what is levures sèches?

Levures sèches, also known as dry yeast, are a type of granulated yeast that have been dehydrated and packaged for extended shelf life. They are commonly used in baking to help bread, pizza dough, and other baked goods rise. Unlike fresh yeast, dry yeast does not require proofing before use and can be added directly to dry ingredients. Levures sèches come in two forms: active and instant. Active dry yeast requires proofing, while instant yeast can be added directly to the dough. Levures sèches are a versatile and convenient ingredient that can help achieve a perfect rise and texture in all kinds of baked goods.
