New Book Helps Readers Unlock the Potential of Rye in Processed Foods

St. Paul, Minn. (December 2014)—Rye has been the subject of many health and nutrition studies in the past decade.  It has been found to stimulate weight loss, lower disease risk, promote gastrointestinal health, and improve cardiovascular conditions.

It’s no wonder that nutritionists and the grain-foods industry worldwide see rye as an important ingredient in recipes that meet the increasing consumer demands for healthy foods.

Enter Rye and Health, edited by veteran food technology and nutrition scientists Kaisa Poutanen and Per Åman. This important new book helps both nutritionists and food manufacturers understand the very latest findings on the composition of rye and its physiological and health effects. It specifically covers…

  • The chemical composition of rye
  • Applications of rye in food production
  • The digestion of rye dietary fiber and its effects on gut metabolism
  • The many bioactive compounds of rye—including lignans, alkylresorcinols, phenolic acids, benzoxazinoids, phytosterols, tocopherols and tocotrienols—and their importance in human health
  • Up-to-date findings on biomarkers and how they can be used in intervention and epidemiological studies to link rye intake with disease risk
  • Rye’s influence on glucose levels and other satiating effects
  • Relationships between rye intake and certain Western diseases such as type 2 diabetes, prostate cancer, and colorectal cancer

Academics and professionals alike will find this book useful. Readers include rye producers and breeders, millers, manufacturers of rye-based goods, health professionals, and nutritionists.
