More Than Yeast

Do you know that we don’t just displace and replace ingredients, but that we also improve product performance and sensory experience in clean label applications? That we’re the first to offer organic yeast and the only with organic yeast made in the U.S.? Did you know that Lesaffre has solutions to optimize machinability, strength, and volume in all types of baked goods? Or that, every day, our expert technical team solves bakery formulation and process challenges at our customers’ bakeries or our Baking Centers around the country?

You may know Lesaffre for our world-class baking yeast and 170-year heritage, but you may not be familiar with our elite technical team and the other innovative ingredients we’ve developed.
