Rye is loved for it enormous health benefits and low glycemic index. Furthermore, this grain type is high in the important B vitamins and the crucial minerals potassium, magnesium, calcium, manganese, iron, cobalt, copper, zinc, chrome, phosphorus, iodine, and boron.
Bono rye has a couple of advantages over other rye varieties. It has a relatively high falling number, high amylograph peak viscosity and high hydration capacity, making for a dough that has good elevation properties and a quick onset of the fermentation and a great moisture level in the baked product.
Both the whole-kernel rye flour and cracked rye deliver a rich, hearty taste.
Rye added to a wheat loaf boosts both its flavor and moisture. It is also delicious in brownies, pancakes and cookies.
The whole grain flour and cracked (raw bulgur) qualities are stone-milled at Dutch Fika (organic grain berries sourced from the Mill at Jamies Farm).
