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 would never happen due to different growing conditions, but were brought together by human intervention to create this nutritionally desirable crop. Our triticale flour is 100% stone ground on cool and slow turning, century-old stone-buhr millstone. Triticale has a flavor that is a bit deeper than wheat's with a subtle hint of rye's grassiness. This hearty, whole grain flour is great for all your baking recipes.
Triticale is packed with dietary fiber and potassium and is low in sodium. It is higher in protein and fiber than both wheat and rye on their own, making it excellent for bread baking. Triticale is also a good source of magnesium and folate.
Triticale Flour can be used to make yeast breads without the addition of wheat. To use 100% triticale flour in your favorite bread recipe, mix your ingredients, knead 3-5 minutes (about half the time as with wheat), shape it, let it rise once until almost, but not completely, doubled (about 45 minutes) and then bake it. Most bread requires between 5 to 10 minutes more cooking time than those made with pure triticale flour and using an instant-read thermometer is essential.
