Did you know . . .
Rye Flour

Rye has a characteristically bitter-strong, earthy flavor. It contains only a small amount of a gluten that is more fragile than the gluten in wheat. This gives a loaf a moist, dense quality. A loaf with rye flour in it will ferment more quickly than a loaf that is all wheat and, if overkneaded, can get very sticky due to natural gums in the grain called pentosans. The presence of acid in a rye dough makes it more manageable, so you will see rye breads with ingredients like vinegar, beer, and sourdough.

Rye is an incredibly healthful grain. It has vitamin E and rutin, two premium antioxidants, is good for combating cholesterol deposits, and contains insoluble fiber. Since rye contains a type of the gluten proteins found in wheat, it is not suitable for gluten-free diets or for sufferers of celiac sprue disease. !
