Ingredients: Finest Quality Rye Flakes (High in Vitamins & Minerals). Rye has a very hardy, deep, nourishing taste. Rolled from a hardy cereal grass, Rye Flakes contain both the germ and the bran, (Rye’s fibre is richly endowed with noncellulose polysaccharides, which have exceptionally high water-binding capacity. Although these two parts (Rye Bran & Germ) make up only 15-17% of the grain's weight, they contain 83% of its phenolics, esp. plant lignans.
Rye’s starch granules are converted more slowly into sugar than other grains. For a hot breakfast alternative to oatmeal, make a porridge using rolled rye flakes.
