Rye Grains

Where did it come from?

The origin of rye is somewhat contested, as there is not a clear line of human domestication of the cereal grain. Rye first came to be used by humans when they noticed it sprouting in their wheat and barley fields as a weed, and it thrived in conditions that other cereals struggled in. As with many other grains, it lost popularity when refined flours became more affordable, but has since made a resurgence due to its bold flavor and nutritional benefits. Rye's hardiness is one of its main characteristics and what made it so popular in regions where growing conditions were not ideal for wheat in places like Russia. This is why those areas have such a great tradition of rye breads to explore.

Many customers find our Super Sprout™ Sprouted Wheat Flour, fall in love with the nutritional benefits and added flavor it offers, and want to give it a try in all their recipes! It is a flour all its own and it can be a bit different to work with but with a little practice a baker can really push the envelope with Super Sprout™ to realize its full potential of flavor and nutrition. In this blog we will share a few tips and tricks to make transitioning to baking with Super Sprout™ Wheat Flour a seamless process.

Pita

We had a great time visiting with our friends from Mediterranean Deli in Chapel Hill! We've been working with them to provide the 100% Certified Organic Flour for their pitas for decades and had a great spread for all of our employees. Mediterranean Deli recently came by to interview Joe and Caroline for a documentary that's in the works!
