Is Rye Gluten-Free?
Rye is known for its bold flavor that is slightly on the sour side. Because rye is a cereal grain from the wheat family, it does contain gluten. Gluten is a protein naturally found in some grains including wheat, barley, and rye. If you have Celiac’s Disease or a gluten sensitivity, it is recommended to avoid these grains. Interestingly, rye bread made without other wheat flours contains less gluten than bread made from whole wheat or all-purpose flours. This means rye bread might be easier to digest than other gluten-containing breads. Examples of gluten-free bread flours include: almond, buckwheat, brown rice, and oat flours, to name a few.
