In small quantities, the sugar enhances fermentation, but when sugar quantity is more than 4% from the flours weight, this creates an osmotic pressure and stops yeast from growing.

Sweet doughs contain a sugar density up to 30%, which is why it’s required to add up fresh yeast up to 7 – 10%: 70 – 100 grams of yeast / 1 kg. of flour.

Dry yeast can be dissolved in warm water, mixed and wait for 5 to 10 minutes before use. The instant dry yeast it’s added with the flour (doesn’t require dissolving).
