Summary
Light rye flour, Type 997
Description
This flour is best for light rye bread and rolls.
This is a high quality product milled by the highest standards by Aurora/Germany (since 1895).
Diamant Mehl is a well known brand in Europe and you won't find similar rye flours on the domestic market.

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.

Rye for Cholesterol Reduction
In a 4-week study of 18 men and 22 women who randomly consumed rye and wheat breads, it was concluded that including rye bread in daily dietary habits is an effective and practical method in reducing LDL cholesterol levels in men.

Another study has demonstrated that cholesterol levels were significantly higher after a low fibre diet than after a high fibre diet.

Rye for Cardiovascular Disease Prevention
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.

Rye for Cancer Preventionmangoes
Rye foods are associated with increased plasma enterolactone, which is an enterolignan (mammalian lignan) that is formed by intestinal microflora after the consumption of plant lignans. Lignans are naturally occurring plant compounds found in rye and other food such as flax seed. Enterolactone can potentially reduce the risks of certain cancers. Enterolactone, and enterodiol, another lignan derived from rye and other foods, have been shown to reduce mammary tumor and inhibit colon tumor cell growth. The fibre in rye may also reduce the risk of colorectal cancer due to improved bowel function.

Rye for Diabetes
Rye products generally produce a beneficial blood glucose profile following a meal, with a low and sustained blood glucose response. Rye products also induce lowered insulin response compared with white wheat, promoted higher post-meal satiety, and induced lowered voluntary energy intake at a subsequent meal.

In a study at Department of Clinical Nutrition in Finland, postprandial (the time after any meal) insulin responses to the ingestion of rye breads were significantly lower than the response to refined wheat bread. Plasma glucose and insulin peaks are lower after a high fibre diet compared with a low fibre diet.

Studies within the HEALTHGRAIN project indicate that rye products generally produce a beneficial blood glucose profile following a meal, with a low and sustained blood glucose response. Rye products also induced lowered insulin response compared with white wheat.

Rye for Menopause
Lignans act as phytoestrogens (plant chemicals that mimic the hormone estrogen), and also as antioxidants. Due to their oestrogenic activity lignans help to reduce hot flushes and vaginal dryness in postmenopausal women and to some degree may inhibit osteoporosis. Higher dietary intake of cereal fibre and whole-grain products are also associated with less development of coronary atherosclerosis in postmenopausal women with coronary artery disease.

Rye for Digestive Health
Whole-grain foods such as rye provide significant digestive health benefits that refined grain products fail to provide. The fibre from rye appears to be more effective than that from wheat in overall improvement of digestive health. An animal study has demonstrated “moister feces and significantly enhanced gut production” with a rye diet as opposed to a wheat diet.


Adverse Reactions from Rye
Due to the gluten in rye, it should be avoided by gluten intolerant individuals.
