Bob's Red Mill Creamy Rye Flakes whole grain hot cereal is delicious, nutritious and easy to prepare. It's made from whole grain rye that's been gently softened with steam, then rolled into flat flakes. Our Rolled Rye Flakes cereal has a mild and wholesome "old world" flavor and is a good source of dietary fiber. The deep, hearty and distinctive flavor of rye has made it popular throughout history and it remains a staple in Eastern European countries and Scandinavia, where it can withstand the cold weather conditions better than other grains.
Rye is a rich and versatile source of dietary fiber, especially a type of fiber called arabinoxylan, which is known for its high antioxidant activity. Rye is a good source of phosphorous, magnesium, copper, iron, zinc and protein.
Rolled Rye Flakes make a pleasant hot cereal that's just the thing for a change of pace. These flakes are also good mixed with oats for a cereal, used in cookies, or added to a bread recipe to give a subtle rye flavor, fiber and hearty texture.
