Rye is a great weight loss grain! Rye fiber is richly endowed with noncellulose polysaccharides, which have exceptionally high water-binding capacity and quickly give a feeling a fullness and satiety, making rye bread a real help for anyone trying to lose weight. Not only that but rye is full of flavour.
For great tasting rye porridge, stir one cup flakes into two cups of water (soak for 10 minutes for a creamier porridge), bring to a boil, stir and cover with lid, and let simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, until desired texture and liquid is absorbed. Serve immediately with the garnishes of your choice.
Studies have shown rye's fibre promotes weight loss, prevents gallstones in women, and substantially lowers Type 2 diabetes. Rye flakes are a source of several essential vitamins and minerals, especially an excellent source of dietary fiber, iron, and thiamine.
