What Is Rye Grain? And Is it Better Than Wheat?

The botanical name for rye is Secale cereale. Rye is also known as rye corn, cereal rye, winter rye, or rye berries, grown in the South Island. Because our rye grain has had no chemical or heat treatment, it is good for sprouting. Rye grain is similar to wheat, but lower in gluten, making it popular among those who prefer to avoid too much gluten. 

So what Is the Difference Between Rye and Wheat?

While rye may seem similar to wheat, it differs in some fundamental ways.

  • Rye is higher in fibre than wheat.
  • It is packed with essential micronutrients, including B vitamins.
  • Rye has a lower glycaemic index and is therefore better for Type 2 Diabetics than wheat.
  • Rye is also significantly lower in gluten than wheat, making it an option for those with gluten sensitivity.
  • It has a typically rye tasty flavour.
