Allinson Easy Bake Yeast is a combination of dried yeast with the bread improver Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C). Ascorbic Acid guarantees the fast action of the yeast, allowing a quick rise and eliminating the need to 'knock back' the dough. The dough will only require one kneading and one period of proving. The yeast can be added with the flour straight from the pack and will become activated as soon as it comes into contact with the liquid. Allinson Easy Bake Yeast is perfect for use in bread makers as well as in hand baking.

Yeast is an essential ingredient in bread making as it causes the bread to rise. It is a living organism and requires food, moisture and warmth to survive. When dehydrated, it will remain dormant until it becomes activated during the process of fermentation. Yeast causes the carbohydrates (initially sugars) present to ferment and produce carbon dioxide (CO2). The CO2 becomes trapped in the dough by the network of gluten strands, causing the dough to rise.
