Grains

Grains, such as buckwheat, rice, millet, barley, oats and wheat are a staple for all of humanity. They contain the vital elements of vitamins and minerals that our body can thrive on.

Barley, millet, oat, rye and wheat are grasses – which there are 11,313 accepted species. Whilst amaranth has about 70 species: buckwheat about 750 in its family, and 120 species of quinoa in the world.

These figures go to show the variety of plants we have in the world, and considering these are only 3 families, I think you’ll find we shouldn’t underestimate the species we have cultivated for mass production. Also, we should, as with our diets, be concerned that we continue to grow high quality and sustainable crops to ensure global food security. If you don’t recognise that this is an important issue, remember that we’ve had to collect species from around the world and store their seeds at the Svalbard Seed Bank so that the decreasing number of species of plants around the world through massive developments of agricultural industry, is not lost and we can preserve diversity for future generations.

So chose our high grade grains, beans and pulses to keep you, your family and future generations well.
