Rye Flour

Single Origin Stoneground Flour

BIO-WHEAT™ Rye flour is milled from the grains of rye. Rye flour is high in bran and soluble fibre content, but low in gluten. For that reason, it won’t produce a well risen loaf of bread. This can be remedied by replacing some of the rye flour in the recipe with one of the wheat flours in the BIO-WHEAT™ range. Rye flour has a distinctive tangy taste and coarse texture. It can be used to prepare rye bread or traditional sourdough bread.
