Whole Organic Rye Berries
Rye has a long history as a staple grain in countries throughout the world. Organic rye berries are an ancient grain that was once considered a poverty grain because it was affordable and available in poorer communities. Today, it is popular among home cooks, chefs, health enthusiasts, and those who love the taste of rye. Rye Berries are the whole-grain form of rye with only the hull removed. Whole organic rye berries provide an aromatic, rich, nutty, and slightly sweet taste. This hearty food is similar to organic wheat berries but packs more vitamins and minerals. Because this underrated grain is so carbohydrate-rich, it makes you feel fuller longer.
Rye berries are full of soluble fiber, protein, carbohydrates, Vitamin E, iron calcium, and potassium. Rye berries help fight free radicals that cause colon cancer, breast cancer as well as reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and sugar diabetes.
Rye berries can be eaten raw after soaked for easier digestion or cooked like other grains. Rye berries hold up to cooking and maintain their consistency with a satisfyingly chewy texture. Think of recipes and ways you enjoy rice and pasta. Organic rye berries are delicious as a side dish or cooked in soups, stews, casseroles, chili, pilaf risotto, meatballs, meatloaf, and other savory dishes. They can also be ground in a mill to create rye flour for delicious loaves of rye bread, and a variety of fresh baked goods. They can also be sprouted, which is turning the berries into tiny growing, live plants, that are delicious when chilled and added to salads and sandwiches.
