Rye Bread is also known as whole-grain bread. This is number one delicious food for your low-carb diet. You can serve this as toasted with omelet or scrambled eggs.
Rye Bread Benefits:
Because the germ and bran in the endosperm remain during processing, rye retains its many nutrients which include fiber, protein, potassium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, vitamin B-1, folic acid, thiamin, niacin and antioxidants. These nutrients also help lower cholesterol along with the risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes. One slice of rye bread contains 83 calories.
2. Improves digestion and body fat distribution:
Rye bread is high in fiber, which improves your digestive health. Fiber, most of which is removed from processed grains, such as white bread, also contributes to lower cholesterol and less fat in the abdomen and around digestive organs, notes the Whole Grain Council. Rye bread helps relieve constipation. High-fiber rye improves bowel movement in overweight middle-ages males.
3. High satiety:
Rye’s high-fiber content contributes to satisfying hunger, making you less likely to reach for a second helping. If you have it for breakfast, rye bread can decrease hunger both before and after lunch as compared to wheat. Participants who ate wheat were hungry early in the afternoon, while those who ate rye bread stayed full until well after the lunch hour.
4. Healthier blood sugar levels:
Because most of the fiber is stripped away processed grains, white bread can create a quick rise in blood sugar that raises your insulin level and informs your body to store fat rather than burn it. The less processed rye grains maintain a more even level of blood sugar and insulin for efficient fat-burning, lower blood pressure, reduced inflammation and a decrease risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
