Red Star All Natural Active Dry Yeast is a strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Once the propagation of the yeast is complete, the product is washed 3 times with potable water to remove any remnants of the growth media. The strain of yeast used has been obtained from nature, and has not been genetically modified. The moisture is removed in such a way that cell viability and leavening power are retained. This results in a granular form of yeast. This “natural” product is unique in that no processing aids or preservatives are used at the time of drying.
