Matthews Cotswold Organic Stoneground Light Rye Flour 1.5kg, 4.5kg & 7.5kg
Matthews Cotswold Organic Light Rye flour is a lighter grey colour than dark rye and by comparison produces lighter rye loaves. The dough is also easier to work with and is not as dense. Traditionally stoneground, some of the bran has been sifted out during the stone milling process but minerals and vitamins found in the bran and germ remain.
Perfect for: Delicious Organic Rye bread, perfect to blend into sourdough recipes, crackers, and savoury snacks with a darker denser character.
Milling & Provenance: Light rye flour is stoneground milled from the centre of the kernel at a lower extraction, which creates a lighter flour. In Germany light rye is classified as Type 997, hence the name. Our rye flour comes direct from our local Cotswold Grain partnership farmers near Stow-On-the-Wold. Carefully selected Organic Rye is separated from every stage of the process to ensure its certification as Organic. Free from enhancements and other additives, it’s good for the planet and great for you.
Top Tip: Add rye flour to your baking recipes for its unique, wholesome nutty flavour. Add rye to bread, cookies, pancakes, pizza crust and crackers.
Rye Health Benefits: Rye is said to be high in core vitamins and minerals like fibre and manganese. If you are looking to lower your gluten intake, then rye typically has a lower gluten content than wheat. It is often referred to as a “Supergrain” due to its heart-healthy high-fibre content.
Allergy Advice: For allergens, including cereals containing gluten, see ingredients in bold.
Flour is a raw ingredient and must be cooked or baked before eating.
