Description

Organic Rye Flour

Our organic rye flour is made by sifting some of the bran to produce a more refined rye flour. This type of flour is suitable for light rye breads, and produces a lighter crumb and less dense texture than some of the dark ryes.  This ancient grain is closely related to wheat and barley.  Rye is considered ancient because it was first cultivated in 1800 BC.

Many people prefer rye to wheat because its DNA has not been changed by farming methods and it has a more extensive nutritional profile.  Rye flour has a deeper, stronger taste than milder tasting wheat. This makes it popular with alternative bakers trying new grain combinations.

If you like getting creative, rye grain can be used in a wide range of recipes and makes a great addition to your baking.

We also stock a wide range of other organic ancient grains.
