So, what is ruislese?

Ruislese is a traditional Finnish food ingredient made from rye flour that has been fermented using sourdough starter. This results in a tangy, slightly sour flavor that is beloved in Nordic cuisine. Ruislese is typically used as a bread improver or flavor enhancer, adding depth and complexity to bread recipes. Its distinct taste and texture make it a popular choice for rye bread, crispbreads, and crackers. Ruislese is also rich in beneficial bacteria and enzymes, which can aid digestion and promote gut health. This versatile and nutritious ingredient is a staple in Finnish kitchens and a favorite among bread enthusiasts around the world.
