Cereals

Cereals include several closely related species of the Poaceae or Gramineae families, such as maize, wheat, rice and oat.
The first cereal grains were domesticated about 12,000 years ago by ancient farming communities in the Fertile Crescent region of southwest Asia.


The word cereal derives from Ceres, the name of the Roman goddess of harvest and agriculture.


  • Cereals are a rich source of vitamins, minerals and trace elements, components necessary for the nourishment of the skin.
