Cereals play an important role in human nutrition, contributing approximately to half the energy and protein intake of the world’s population, with wheat, corn, rice, barley, oats, rye and sorghum being the most important. Grapes in addition to these cereals, most commonly used in human and animal nutrition, other grains, such as quinoa, amaranth, buckwheat, chia and flaxseed, have been studied in recent years because they present themselves as an excellent source of energy and protein with high nutritional value, besides fibers, lipids, vitamins and minerals.
