Rye flakes contain mainly lysine, a basic amino acid for our health. They are rich in fiber which helps in digestion and a good source of magnesium, folic acid, protein and vitamin B1. All of the above ingredients, therefore, mean that rye flakes can help reduce the symptoms of menopause. Also, rye offers significant health benefits to our digestive system, more than wheat. Finally, rye helps prevent heart disease, reduce cholesterol, and prevent diabetes.
It can therefore be considered an excellent ingredient for a healthy breakfast or a light meal along with milk, yoghurt or fruit.
