Organic Rye

Rye has a high level of fiber in both its endosperm and its bran. Because of this, rye products tend to have a lower glycemic index compared to products made from most other grains. Rye is also a rich and versatile source of dietary fiber, especially a type of fiber called arabinoxylan, known for its high antioxidant activity.

It contains phenolic acids, lignans, alkylresorcinols and many other compounds with potential bioactivities. Rye is an excellent source of Selenium and Manganese and Magnesium, and the cholesterol lowering B vitamins Folate, Riboflavin, Niacin and Thiamin. Rye flour is high in Gliadin but low in Glutenin and therefore has a lower gluten content than wheat flour.

Common use:

Milled - rye flour is traditionally used to create German or Eastern European sourdough breads but also lends itself well to crisp breads, crackers, cookies, cakes and muffins, including pumpernickel. Rye flour makes excellent sourdough starter and is prized for the unique strong flavour that it imparts. Using rye flour yields baked goods that are moist and dense, with a slightly sour flavor. The gluten in rye is similar in character to the gluten in pastry flour, which is low, and is therefore often used in combination with wheat flour (bread flour or all-purpose). Light rye flour can be successfully substituted for 40% of wheat flour in a recipe without loss of volume. 

Flaked - it can be cooked into a fresh porridge or use it in your favorite fruit crisp topping, muesli, granola or dessert bars

Sprouted - you can enjoy the whole kernels in a raw, high fiber breakfast cereal by soaking grains overnight or 10-12 hours in the refrigerator. This has the added benefit of activating the seed enzymes, making the grain more digestible and nutritious. You can sprout them further and sprinkle on salads, sandwiches, or juice into smoothies.

Boiled or pressure cooked it serves a delightful, chewy, and versatile rice substitute or in soups, salads, risottos and fillings. As with any of the wheat berries, if you pre soak cooking time can be reduced. To cook, bring two parts water to one part rye kernels to a boil and simmer 35 minutes for a firmer Al Dente" texture or 45-60 minutes for a softer texture. Drain and enjoy!

Great product. Quality is high, and the berries sprouted quickly and fairly evenly.
