Description

Organic Rye Grain is the perfect starting point for delicious homemade bread.

Organic Rye grain is closely related to wheat and barley.  It 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 grain 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 sprouted, dried and then ground down to produce nutrient rich ‘sprouted rye flour’.  It can then be used in a wide range of recipes and makes a great addition when baking.
