Grains, commonly referred to as ‘cereals’ or ‘cereal grains’, are the edible seeds of specific grasses belonging to the Poaceae (also known as Gramineae) family and one of the most cultivated crops worldwide. Cereal grains are one of the staples of human food. Most cereal grains are used for food with minimal processing. They are also used as food ingredients, feed grain for livestock, and industrial applications.
Oilseeds such as soybeans, rapeseed and sunflower seeds are the foundation for a wide variety of foods, animal feeds and other products.
