In the wheat berry it is the germ that is made up largely of fat that goes rancid after a time and spoils the wholewheat flour. Is that true with rye? I don't know.

How about if you shop at a place that sells bulk flour and just buy what you need at the time and avoid the waste?

I keep mine in the freezer(at home) and it seems to help.
