Milled from rye grain and sieved to remove the bran and coarse particles, this flour is naturally low in gluten and typically produces fine textured baked goods.

Rye, secale cereale, is a popular grain grown throughout Central and Eastern Europe. This hardy crop can thrive in poor soils and cold conditions.

Rye grain has been cultivated at Doves Farm for many years and grows well on chalk and flint down lands. Traditionally farmers grew rye on land not suitable for wheat and occasionally planted wheat and rye together hoping one or the other would thrive. Rye flour is naturally high in gliadin but low in glutenin resulting in a lower gluten content than wheat flour thus producing characteristic close textured and flavoursome bread and baked goods.
