Rye Flour: Market Outlook

Rye is favoured over wheat in cold areas as rye grain can be produced under mixed climatic conditions, whereas wheat requires dry & warm weather. The colour of the flour depends upon the amount of bran remaining in the flour after processing. The more of the bran left, the darker the meal. The bran layer contains more nutrients, which boosts the nutritional value of the flour. Therefore, consumers prefer a dark variety, owing to its nutritional and health benefiting properties.

Some of the most significant nutritional benefits of rye flour include its potential to help fight cancer, weight gain, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and inflammation. The increasing consumer preference for nutritional and low-gluten food products is anticipate to increase the market demand for rye flour over the forecast period.
