There are many sorts of grains and seeds other than those of which we generally think, notably 'forgotten' grains or exotic species. What are the nutritional benefits of teff, amarante and quinoa? What are their possible uses? Given the success of whole grains-based products in recent years, this avenue constitutes an alternative that is rich in possibilities.
