Rye is a cereal with a long history and many good health aspects.

Rye has always been a vital cereal. We wouldn't have our beloved knäckebröd if we didn't have rye. From the Middle Ages to the beginning of the 20th century, rye was the most important cereal in large parts of Sweden. Even today, it is an important cereal, even if other grains such as wheat are grown more today.

The history of rye

Rye is believed to have originated in Central Asia and has since been grown in many different parts of the world. The cultivated rye belongs to a species complex with wild species and wild species that occur as weeds. All subspecies within this complex are grossly fertile with each other, so over the years, rye has had an ongoing cross-fertilisation that has given rye slightly different properties around the world. Rye is a type of grain that has been cultivated all around the world for thousands of years. That is because rye is a hardy crop that can be grown in many different climates and soils. Rye is also an essential source of nutrition and has many health benefits.

The health benefits of rye

Rye is a good source of fibre, protein, vitamins and minerals. Eating bread baked on whole grain rye flour, e.g. crackers, is a healthy choice. Whole grains are only found in cereals when the entire grain includes. In the whole grain, there is, among other things, a part which is the fibre itself. Whole grains have more benefits than just their fibre content and affect health in several different ways. One example is that whole grains are among the best nutrients for intestinal bacteria, creating good intestinal flora. An excellent intestinal flora, in turn, affects health positively. The dietary fibre in rye is also suitable for digestion and can help lower cholesterol. Rye also contains antioxidants that are important for protecting the body against disease.
