Rye Flour for Dogs

For Low Gluten Dog Treats

Using rye flour for dogs in your homemade dog treats is a way to vary your dog’s diet and add extra nutrition.

Very low in gluten, but high in nutrition, rye is often used in commercial dog treats and dog food.

Unlike many of the ancient grains and flours, rye only appeared on the scene in Europe during the Middle Ages.

Rye quickly became a staple in European diets, and bread made from rye, was almost the whole "meal" in many European countries.

Rye is very nutritious. In fact, it actually contains more protein, phosphorus, iron, potassium and B vitamins than whole wheat.

Rye grains are ground into flour,
when they are mature.

Rye in Dog Treats

Rye comes in various forms: rye flour, whole grain rye (or groats), rye grits, rye meal (ground so that it resembles cornmeal), rye flakes or rolled rye (looks almost like oatmeal).

Your dog will like the flavor of rye—maybe even as much as you do! Try substituting ½ to 1 cup of rye for other flours in your favorite dog treats recipe.

Add a tablespoon of caraway for flavor. Rye and caraway seeds are often found together in recipes for rye bread, and they go nicely together!

You will be able to buy this flour at your local grocery store. Just look in the baking section with all the flours. Or you can buy it online here.

You might be able to find cracked rye (rye grits) or rye flakes in the cereal section, depending on the variety of cereals that your store carries.

Consider using rye or rye products in some of your homemade dog treat recipes. You'll be adding great nutrition and wonderful flavor that your dog will love!
