Caputo Lievito Active Dry Yeast is a traditional Italian-made dry yeast of the yeast species Saccharomyces Cerevisiae, which is the most common type of yeast used for pizza baking in the Naples region of Italy for hundreds of years.
Created by Caputo in response to problems with fresh yeast - low shelf life and inconsistent strength, Caputo Lievito Active Dry Yeast has a much longer shelf life than fresh yeast, and has a consistent strength over long fermentation periods. Moreover, it dies completely at 58°C, unlike chemical yeasts which apart from collapsing if left to ferment too much, do not die during cooking, causing digestion fatigue.
Caputo Lievito Active Dry Yeast is made by growing yeast cells fed with local Italian molasses, which also gives a pleasant taste to the yeast. Due to this, Caputo Lievito Active Dry Yeast is also naturally gluten free and is easier on the digestive system.
Caputo Lievito Active Dry Yeast works perfectly in combination with type 00 flour.
