With its flavorful and distinctive robust flavor, rye flour has been popular throughout history and is still a common flour used today in Eastern European countries and Scandinavia. Rye is a grass grown extensively as a cereal grain, cover crop or forage crop. It is a member of the wheat tribe and is closely related to barley. It is lower in gluten than wheat flour and contains a high percentage of soluble fiber. Due to its lower gluten content, breads made with mostly rye flour will not rise as much and the crumb will be more dense with smaller holes. Rye flour can be used to make muffins, bread and crackers. It can also be added to wheat flour in small percentages to boost the flavor of bread.
