BALTIC RYE

 

Ingredients: Rye flour, rye sourdough, rye malt, caraway seeds, salt, a touch of sugar (to promote sourdough fermentation), and a pinch of yeast. Each 1/4-inch slice (50 grams) of Black Rooster Baltic Rye provides:

  • 3 grams of protein
  • 4 grams of fiber (16% RDA)
  • 27 grams of carbohydrate (9% RDA)
  • 170 milligrams of sodium (7% RDA)
  • 140 calorie

Nutritional studies in Scandinavia revealed that breads made with 100% rye contain more fiber, vitamin E, riboflavin, folacin, and disease fighting antioxidants than wheat based breads. Furthermore, rye bread is much lower on the glycemic index than other conventional grains. Rye bread is also recognized as having anticarcinogenic qualities that are particularly well-suited to reducing the risk of prostrate, breast, and colon cancers.

 

For decades bread lovers hungering for 100% healthful sourdough rye have had to freight it from Europe at high cost. Now, thanks to Black Rooster Food, you can buy it, made in USA, in your neighborhood or online.
