Rye is a strong, tasteful grain that is perfectly suited as a nutritious breakfast, for that long satisfied feeling of being stuffed. You can use rye flakes as base for a muesli, or cooking it for gruel for instance. Just like with other grains, Rye contains many nutritional fibers and proteins. Especially the high content of nutritional fibers seems one of the reasons that eating rye flakes give you that longer stuffed feeling than other grains. Flakes are also a good source of several minerals like mangaan, selenium, magnesium and phosphorus. In order to make the flakes, the moisture content of the grain is raised by means of steam. The grains are then flattened by flattening machines, where they come out as flat flakes. It is almost impossible to flatten grains without steam, because the extra moisture makes sure that the grains are flattened instead of crumbled.
