Red Star Yeast Introduces PLATINUM

And, now for the 1st time in a generation, comes a new exciting product from the Red Star yeast family. DRUMROLL PLEASE…

Please Welcome PLATINUM, by Red Star − Professional quality baking made simple at home!

The new Red Star PLATINUM yeast is designed as a superior baking yeast, to take the fear out of baking. “PLATINUM is simple to use. So forgiving it takes the intimidation out of baking with yeast!” Why? According to Red Star:

  1. Strengthens the dough and improves dough tolerance to variations in kneading, rising, and flour quality

  2. Increases the amount of leavening retained in the dough

  3. Decreases the risk of the dough collapsing after proofing or during baking

  4. Increases oven "spring" and the finished volume of the baked product

  5. Works great in any bread recipe but is particularly effective in producing healthy whole grain and sweet breads that are light, airy, and larger in volume. (Think sweet challah- we did!)

  6. Certified Kosher parve by the KOF-K

  7. Does not contain any peanuts, tree nuts, potatoes, or any other products derived from these sources

  8. Dairy-free, egg-free and vegan

  9. NOT gluten free

  10. KosherEye used PLATINUM yeast to make our Sweet Yom Tov Challah recipe. The results were awesome! The rise, the dough handling, and the taste made a challah that we look forward to serving at our Rosh Hashanah table. (Yes, who could resist, we included a tasting sample in our batch)

    Linda Nelsen, consumer relations specialist Lesaffre Yeast Corporation, shares several important yeast baking tips – very helpful to insure successful yeast dough results.
