Rye Berries Substitute to make Sourdough
Hi TFL members, am looking for Rye berries substitute to make a sourdough starter and rye bread
Due to the low glycemic index, it was suggested to eat Pumpernickel or rye bread. These breads have suited me fine. But baked in limited quantity and expensive and have many other additions to the store bought bread.
I have tried making the Sourdough Starter using Rye flour but the starter does not show much activity.
I am following Mary's Nest website recipe, and she uses Rye berries.
Is there any substitute for Rye Berries. Will buckwheat groats or Amaranth grains serve the same purpose. Am aware they are GF and may need to add some other form of gluten.
Not sure regarding the Glycemic index
Appreciate any help form the members - thank you for reading my post
