Organic Rye Flour
Organic rye flour has a stronger flavour than most other flours and is traditionally used in making breads such as dark rye and pumpernickel. As it lacks the glutinous proteins of its brother wheat, the bread made from rye flour is much heavier, denser and usually darker than wheat breads. It can be used in combination with other flours to make a more balanced bread.
Rye flour goes well in combination with other flours such as wholewheat and spelt flour in making sourdough breads.
Interesting Facts About Rye:
Rye is an ancient grain that has become increasingly popular as an alternative to wheat. It has a rich history as a nutrient dense grain with a rich flavour.
Rye is low in glutanin, a class of proteins included in the gluten category that give bread its rise and elasticity. This is why bread made from rye flour is dense and heavy unless mixed with a combination of other flours.
