Triticale Flour Organic 1kg
Triticale Flour Organic 1kg

Triticale is a type of flour ground from a high protein hybrid grain produced by crossbreeding wheat and rye and is higher in protein than either the wheat or the rye.  It also has a stronger nuttier flavor than wheat.

Pronounced “trit-i-KAY-lee”, the name is a combination of the Latin botanical names of wheat and rye – “triti,” referring to triticum for wheat and “cale”, referring to secale for rye.

Triticale is a healthy grain with a high protein content and a better amino acid balance than either of the parent grains.  It's Lysine content is higher than wheat and stores well for long periods of time, up to a year sealed and in a freezer.

In yeast bread dough Triticale flour has better handling properties than rye flour, but does not handle well as a wheat dough.  Because of it's weaker gluten content, when making leavened breads, you should use at least 50% wheat flour to ensure a good rise.  But Triticale Flour can be used to make yeast breads without the addition of wheat.

If you use 100% Triticale flour, mix your ingredients, knead 3-5 minutes (about half the time as with wheat), shape it, and let it rise one time only until almost, but not completely doubled (about 45 minutes), then bake it.
