Cereal rye is a grass grown extensively as a grain, a cover crop and a forage crop.

Rye grain is smaller and darker than wheat, is harder to mill, and produces a lower percentage of flour.

It can also be eaten whole, either as boiled rye berries or by being rolled, similar to rolled oats.

Rye is unique among grains for having a high level of fibre in its endosperm – not just in its bran.

As such, the glycaemic index (GI) of rye products is generally lower than products made from wheat and most other grains.

And… it grown in our states South West between July and October!

Its been enjoyed for decades in Australia from rye bread to crisp bread and from rye beer to some whiskeys and some vodkas.

So what is your favourite ways to consume rye?
