Grainworks Organic Triticale Flakes are carefully milled from our farm-fresh Certified Organic whole grain organic triticale and are wonderfully versatile in the kitchen. If you've never tried them, you'll find many so uses for them you'll wonder what took you so long! Triticale has just a hint of rye flavour and a dark, hearty texture. Triticale: The best of wheat and rye together in one grain Triticale is a highly nutritious whole grain hybrid of wheat and rye, combining the benefits of both and higher in protein than wheat. From rye, triticale inherited the ability to survive cold, drought, and acidic soil -- conditions that destroy wheat crops. Like wheat, triticale contains gluten, meaning it is not suitable for gluten free diets and can be used alone to make bread. Bread made from triticale are denser and heavier than wheat bread due to triticale's lower gluten content. From a home chef's view triticale can easily replace wheat, rye, or rice in many recipes. Nutritionally triticale is similar to wheat with a nice amino acid balance, dietary fiber and vegan protein. Like other whole grains, triticale is also an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, including folic acid, calcium, phosphorus, zinc, magnesium, iron, and B vitamins. Here is a fantastic granola recipe from Chef Joseph that uses these flakes together with traditional oats.
