    Rye bread with caraway is great with cabbage rolls. The caraway helps reduce gas.

    I think it would be a great change from "diet bread" . I'll check the nutrition labels.

    I prefer rye and sourdough to any of the other breads, so this is great news to me (especially since I just got some). I had been told rye wasn't good before, so I am glad to read this.

    I love rye bread and choose it more frequently than others. Glad to know this is a more healthy choice.
