Rye vs. Wheat:

Rye provides carbohydrates, plenty of fiber, as well as vitamin E; the B vitamins thiamine, riboflavin, folic acid, and pantothenic acid; the minerals calcium, potassium and iron; and phosphorus. It has less gluten than wheat. Significantly, rye provides a complete amino acid profile. Wheat also provides complex carbohydrates, fiber, and vitamins and minerals. Wheat is an incomplete protein; while it contains all eight essential amino acids, it does not contain them in adequate amounts for good nutrition.

Based on talking with lots of folks (customers) who eat RyKrisp, the impact of rye is that you end up with a lot less filling/bloating feeling. Whether it’s the lower gluten or not, I am not yet that expert.

    Rye definitely…. it’s much more flavorful and a unique one at that. And like it’s mentioned the gluten factor isn’t there and just the wheat thing…! Rye Wins!!!
