Here's Why You Can't Find Yeast in Stores

Here's Why You Can't Find Yeast in Stores There has been a noticeable lack of all types of yeast in stores. Sarah Jampel, Bon Appétit editor and former Food52 staff writer, tweeted about the shortage earlier this week. As of March 30, grocery delivery service FreshDirect was sold out of dry active and instant yeast, as well as all-purpose, whole-wheat and bread flour. Consumers have been stockpiling certain items and grocery stores are unable to keep up with the demand. The CDC recommends having a two-week supply of food at home but limiting trips to the grocery store, which means people need more food, but are going to the store less often. If you are unable to find yeast, make your own sourdough bread starter. Pastry chef Zoe Kanan recommends making breads leavened with baking powder or soda instead, like Irish soda bread.
