Rolled Triticale – Available Soon!
Triticale is a relatively new grain, the result of successful plant breeding over the past 100+ years, and it is still a work in progress. It is a cross between durum wheat (genus Triticum) and rye ( genus Secale) and its name is a cross between its parents’ Latin names. Triticale was first grown in 1875 but commercial production did not begin until 1969. Fortunately, the hybrid acquired desirable characteristics from both parent grains, having the yield potential of wheat and adaptation to harsher growing conditions (dryer, colder) of rye. And triticale can boast an even higher protein content – and better balance of amino acids – than either parent grain. It can be used just like wheat or rye, with one exception: its lower gluten content requires that its flour be mixed with wheat flour for yeast breads.
Enjoy rolled triticale with other rolled grains in breakfast porridge or granola – and add to soups and casseroles for an extra protein and nutrient boost. Grain Place Rolled Triticale is processed in a way that increases digestibility, while retaining nutrients and improving storage quality.

Triticale contains gluten and is processed on the same equipment on which wheat, barley and soybeans are processed, and is handled in the same plant that handles sesame seeds and peanuts.
