Rye bread is healthy
Rye bread is a very nutritious bread. It provides a lot of dietary fiber and also iron. Before wheat bread became the main type of bread in the Netherlands, rye bread was part of the main meal. But eating a slice of rye bread every day isn't a bad idea. In a number of ways, rye bread is even healthier than wholemeal bread. For example, it contains more fiber and less carbohydrates. And the darker the rye bread, the more fiber. There is also more vitamin B6 and vitamin E in rye bread. Vitamin B6 is good for your digestion and resistance. Vitamin E keeps muscles and other tissues in good condition and also ensures good resistance. Finally, the blood sugar level rises less quickly from rye bread than from wholemeal bread. This is due to the many fibers that ensure that the carbohydrates are slowly absorbed into the blood. This keeps you feeling "full" for longer. This is also good for the line.
Frisian rye bread and Brabantine rye bread
There are various regional recipes for rye bread throughout the country, from south to north. The differences in these regional recipes are mainly in the preparation method. Rye bread is mainly cooked instead of baked. This is because the oven has a very low temperature when "baking" rye bread. The duration of the baking process differs per recipe. Brabantine rye bread is baked for about 2 to 4 hours and is generally lighter. Frisian rye bread, on the other hand, is much darker. The baking time for this can therefore be up to 24 hours. The composition of Frisian and Brabantine rye bread also differs. Brabantine rye bread contains wheat flour and ground rye, and yeast or sourdough is used. Frisian rye bread contains no yeast or sourdough and is made from crushed rye grains. The taste of this is slightly sweeter.
