Baker’s Bonus

What is Baker’s Bonus?

Lesaffre developed perfect deactivated yeasts that can correct baking flours and control their rheological characteristics. Because flours only rarely display all the qualities necessary for their transformation into bread, corrective elements need to be added. This is achieved through deactivated yeasts, which are heat-treated to strip them of their fermenting power and are particularly rich in glutathione (GSH).

Baker’s Bonus is our deactivated yeast solution designed to make bakers’ work simpler in both industrial and craft settings.
