  • Product Info

    Janie's Mill organic Light Rye Flour has some of the bran sifted out to give the flour a silky smooth texture and light color. But our stone-milling process means that the flour retains the sweet and earthy flavors of the whole rye kernel. Our Light Rye is a very versatile flour, and really shines in biscuits, pancakes, cookies, and brownies. And of course it’s great in breads! Try substituting rye flour for some or all of your usual flour, and taste the difference! 


  • Great to Use In:

    Rye breads, rye crepes, cookies, biscuits, pancakes, quick breads, or combine with bread flour in yeast or sourdough breads.

I recently used this flour along with your whole kernel bread flour. I made an old recipe I found on-line for Polish Sauerkraut Bread. It looked beautiful and tasted amazing.

Lovely Flour!

I made the Valais Rye, the GOST Borodisky Rye, and a wheat-beer rye bread, all from Stanley Ginsberg's fantastic book, The Rye Baker. Family berserk with pleasure. Couldn't wish for better flour!
Do try it; it's fresh, light, and gently aromatic.

One of my faves

I mostly use light rye to feed my starter. I have used it in sourdough and brownies with great results.

Sourdough Rye bread

This flour combined with Janie’s Mill High Protein flour makes the best rye bread ever!

For Bread and More

Launching a loaf of bread using my 100% light rye starter that I keep in the fridge makes for great anticipation. When combined with Janie's Mill all purpose or sifted artisan flours, my bread gathers all its sour rye potential over a long rise, and then produces a lightly textured, grassy loaf that loves being toasted. That same starter provides the base for my sourdough crackers. ANY cheese is pleased to be coupled with these little snappers. And then there are light rye starter sourdough pancakes. Sometimes (AH!), with wild rice in the batter.
