Can you use fresh yeast after best before date

Answered By: Evan Cox Date: created: Dec 14 2022

Fresh yeast has a much shorter shelf life. It usually lasts around 2 to 3 weeks from the packaging date, so you pretty much buy it right before you need it.

Is Expired yeast poisonous

Answered By: Isaac Walker Date: created: Mar 15 2023

Expired yeast won’t make you sick, but it also may not be active enough to use. If in doubt, add the yeast to a little warm water, and feed it a tablespoon of sugar. If it isn’t actively bubbling after ten minutes, it’s too old to use. Actively bubbling means you can see bubbles rising to the surface and bursting.
