Brilliant yeast

5 stars

This is the best dried yeast I have used. Makes lovely bread and rolls. Excellent product.


5 stars

Great for all kinds of breads, very happy with the results. I always activate it (even if you don’t need to) because then I can be sure it’s not dead.

OK yeast, shame about the wheat

2 stars

Picked this up when I couldn't get my usual brand, went to use it today and realised it contained wheat, luckily I was using it for the gluten eater in the house, not myself, the bread came out OK, so the yeast was fine in that respect, but I'm really surprised and disappointed that Tesco feel the need to add unnecessary wheat to their yeast, back to paying a bit extra for my usual brand.

Great value with consistent results.

5 stars

Bought this yeast as my usual (more expensive) brand was unavailable and I'm pleased to say this Tesco's own brand works like a dream! Now I'm a novice baker, but every hand-kneaded loaf I have made with these sachets has risen beautifully and tasted absolutely divine. These packets of eight individually sealed sachets are great value and have the perfect amount of yeast required for one loaf (using 500g of bread flour in the recipe I use). Consistent results, every time. No complaints here :)

Using only this for my breads

5 stars

Thankfully back in stock, as my "natural" yeast did not work during lockdown, probably because I live too near the sea. Have been using this yeast for some years, never disappointing.

Most Impressed!

5 stars

Really does an excellent job - the rising of the dough and final results are impressive!

Makes dough rise

5 stars

Excellent yeast. I used this to make Cinnamon buns and they were delicious. I would have preferred fresh yeast, but haven't been able to locate that in major stores in the UK.


5 stars

Excellent. Very impressed, used in my bread maker and truly equally as good as the other very well names brand and much cheaper

Always reliable, great results.

5 stars
