Cracked rye adds a nice texture to baked goods and can be added to your rice like barley groats or spelt berries.
Rye is a very good source of dietary fibre, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, protein and vitamin B1. Rye is also a rich source of lignans, one of the major classes of phytoestrogens, estrogen-like chemicals that also act as antioxidants.
Consumption of breads such as rye or pumpernickel is associated with a lower risk of incident cardiovascular disease, and a higher intake of whole grain breakfast cereals is associated with a lower risk of heart failure. It has also been recommended that the elderly increase consumption of dietary cereal fibre due to the association with a lower risk of incident cardiovascular disease.
