Triticale

grain-triticale[1]The first human-engineered grain in history, triticale is a high-protein rye-wheat hybrid. It is low in gluten and high in lysine, protein, and some B vitamins.

This grain can be used much the same way as soft wheat. Products made with triticale flour are very tender, and their flavor, texture, crust, and crumb color are similar to those products containing wheat.

Triticale flakes are made by heating whole triticale until soft and then pressing flat with steel rollers.

Use triticale in soups, cakes, breads, pancakes, and waffles.
