Hello Ana, yes, you can. If you are using Instant yeast, you can add it directly to the flour but I won't put it next to salt, so I would mix the flour with salt until well-combined first, then add the instant yeast. Hope that helps and feel free to let us if you have any other questions. Have a great day! Sincerely, WoonHeng

Yes. Absolutely. All yeasts are a little different but feel free to use it like Active Dry.
