A powdery foodstuff milled from a cereal grass. Rye flour has less gluten than all-purpose flour or whole wheat flour, and is also darker in color and heavier than most other flours. Because of its low gluten content, it does not produce a high-rising loaf of bread without the addition of other flours higher in protein. Rye flour is often used in Eastern European cooking.


Rye flour is often found in recipes that also contain fennel seeds, yeast, molasses, orange zest, cornmeal and bread flour
