Best Instant Dry Yeast to Buy

Prime Instant Dry Yeast

One of the finest Instant Dry Yeast that we highly recommended. Prime Instant Dry Yeast is a vegetarian product and is good for all kind of baking. I have been using this natural yeast for baking in all my recipes and they have always turned out to be great. It's one of the best yeast for bread in India. 

Gloripan Instant Dry Yeast

Gloripan Instant Dry Yeast is also a great Instant dry yeast that will consistently give great results in all your baking experiments. This is a vegetarian product and can be used for baking and for flat Kulchas and Naan too. Store it in a cool and dry place for longer shelf life.

Angel Instant Dry Yeast

Angel Instant Dry Yeast, a vegetarian product, is our third recommendation in the section of Instant Dry Yeast. Again with a good shelf life of 2 years, the yeast is absolutely suitable for baking all kind of baked items.

Best Active Dry Yeast to Buy

Holy Natural Active Dry Yeast

Holy Natural Baker's Active Dry Yeast is a vegetarian product that can be used for making bread, pizza, and buns. This yeast can be used for baking as well as for making some Indian dishes like naan and kulchas.

Neotea Active Dry Yeast

Neotea Active Dry Yeast is a vegetarian yeast that holds antiviral and antibacterial properties. Use it for baking, brewing, or in making Indian Flat Bread like Kulchas.

Dunhill Baker's Active Dry Yeast

Dunhill Bakers Active Dry Yeast is a vegetarian product that can be used in flour for baking purposes. You may use this yeast for making some of the south Indian dishes as well. The yeast has a long shelf life of 18 months if stored in a cool and dry place.


In my experience, all of the yeast gives nearly similar results, however, one yeast that I never recommend to use is of Blue Bird.  The yeast is found to have longer proofing time and leaves the prominent flavor of yeast in your bakes.

  • Hi Sonia,
    When ever I bake my breads I have yeast smell lingering in my bread …any good brand which does not leave that smell?

  • Can you please tell me if I can use a bread maker, an if I should use the same quantity that the book says 3tspoons to 450g flour thank you Mary

  • Hi sonia, I use SAF instant and also red star…! Found these good as well….have you worked with these before.

  • Hi Sonia
    Thanks for this list. I second you regarding blue bird yeast. I have been using it for your recipes because that is the one I get locally in small sachets and it does leave a prominent taste especially in wheat breads. Since I don’t bake so often, my yeast tends to expire and to play safe I do away with it even if large amount of yeast is left. So I am often in two minds to order these yeast in .5 kg packs as get wasted when expired.
    Can we still use yeast even after expiry date if it is still doing its job?
