Bread made with rye flour, typically dark in colour and with a dense, chewy texture.
- Rye is low in gluten, the substance which gives wheat bread its light, elastic texture; so rye bread is always rather dense.
- But then you run into a contrast problem… toasted rye bread isn't much darker than untoasted rye bread.
- In a study published in the Journal of Nutrition, the effects of eating white bread and rye bread on cholesterol levels in men were compared.
