The next in line of my RSVP series is - Rye. The minute you think Rye, the first thing that pops into one's mind is the Rye Bread - so famous in Europe,Russia and Scandinavia. Its a popular crop in the areas with colder climates since it is such a hardy grain.

Rye flour has a lower gluten content and contains higher proportion of soluble fiber.

Benefits of Rye


  1. It is a good source of Vit E,Protein,Calcium,Iron,Phosphorous,potassium and some B vitamins.

  2. It is also high in fiber and is used as a nature's medicine for strengthening the digestive system.

For more information on Rye refer here I have this recipe - Danish Rye Bread which is a dark,dense and dry loaf.

This most importantly keeps well for a while.So leftovers are not a problem :)It is very good for sandwiches and we liked it with our soup too.No butter,No shortening,No egg,incorporating just health and taste!
