Triticale (trit-ih-KAY-lee) is a very special hybrid grain resulting from a cross between wheat (Triticum) and rye (Secale). Plant breeders wanted to combine the grain quality, productivity and disease resistance of wheat with rye's vigor and hardiness. The chances of these two plants meeting on their own in nature was nil due to their vastly different growing conditions, but thanks to human intervention they were brought together to create this nutritionally desirable crop. Triticale has a flavor that is a bit deeper than wheat's with a subtle hint of rye's grassiness. Try these hearty berries in place of rice in your recipe. They're packed with dietary fiber and low in sodium.
Triticale Berries can also be used for grinding in your home mill or for sprouting. This nutritious, tasty grain is outstanding when cooked until tender, cooled, and added to your favorite yeast bread to add a full-bodied texture and light rye flavor. For a new twist on salads, soups, pilafs and casseroles, use tritcale in place of rice or other grains. See the back of our package for basic cooking instructions, as well as a terrific recipe for Triticale & Edamame Salad.

- Love it!
- I grind my own flour and I really like the addition of triticale to my bread. It isn't as harsh tasting as rye, and it is also good on its own, as it raises nicely.
