Useful guide to grains and other edible seeds

leave a comment »

Via Slashfood, check out this useful list of grains and edible seeds. “Grains” or “cereals” are the seeds of grasses. Other plants have useful edible seeds—buckwheat, amaranth, quinoa, chia are notable examples—but these are not “grains” because the plants are not grasses. Rice, corn, wheat, barley, oats, and the like are grains.

At any rate, it’s a useful list, even with the errors.
