Organic Rye Grain is Australian grown and certified organic. Rye is moderately dark in colour with a strong, robust flavour.

Organic Rye Grain is rich in B-vitamins, iron, calcium, phosphorus, potassium and the highest content of lysine (an essential amino acid) out of all grains. It has a low gluten content and is easily digestible. As it is easier to digest than wheat, some people with wheat and gluten sensitivities may tolerate it in their diet. 

Rye Grain is a versatile grain that can be ground into flour, sprouted or cooked in savoury or sweet recipes. Rye flour is a great flour for baking food like sourdough bread, buns, cakes and pastry. Sprouted Rye grain can be added to salads, wraps, to make crackers and certain breads. Once cooked it can also be added to salads, stews, pudding and soups. If you pre-soak Rye Grain, it will reduce the amount of time it needs to be cooked. 

NOTE: Sprout ability is subject to the quality of each batch.

We recommend storing grain, well sealed in the fridge.

Santos Organics is not your average grocery store; it's a not-for-profit social enterprise and environmental charity. Since 1978, we've pioneered the organic wholefood movement. Our stores serve as community hubs where people connect with our team and fellow community members, sharing a journey toward optimal health and wellness. The palpable sense of community forms part of the social and cultural fabric of the Byron Shire and Northern Rivers. Employing over 70 passionate locals, we support hundreds of local farmers, makers, and artisans, promoting the local economy, building community resilience, and strengthening the local food system. Approximately 75% of the food on our shelves is locally grown, produced, or supplied, nurturing interconnectedness and supporting those passionate about clean, wholesome food and sustainable living.

Santos Organics makes conscious shopping easy by sourcing the best organic food and natural lifestyle products. We invest in ethics research through a dedicated Ethics Specialist position, ensuring our products meet rigorous standards before reaching our shelves. Our Care Check process aligns products with our social impact and environmental goals, providing customers with confidence in their purchases. Our commitment to ethical product procurement extends to partnerships with local farmers through initiatives like the Grow the Growers Project. This project helps local farmers establish pathways to the organic retail market, making fresh, locally grown organic food more available and affordable. By incorporating supply agreements and mutual marketing support, we foster connections between customers and the farmers behind their food.

Santos Organics significantly impacts the local community and economy. Over the last three years, our investments in local employment, goods from local suppliers and distributors, rent, and hiring local tradespeople have retained over $26 million within the Northern Rivers. In the past year alone, $5.3 million was circulated back into the local economy through these efforts, supporting over 100 Northern Rivers-based suppliers and distributors. This investment sustains our community's vitality and unique culture. Employing over 70 local team members ensures money stays within the local economy, enhancing opportunities for community interaction and support. Our local suppliers share our vision of promoting creative, sustainable, and healthy product development, strengthening the reputation of the Byron Bay region as a hub for innovation and sustainability.
