Ancient grains have been consumed by people for millennia, but have only recently grown in popularity. Offering the benefits of whole grain nutrition, including the possibility of high amounts of fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants and trace vitamins, they also deliver unique flavors, colors and textures. Further, varieties such as quinoa, amaranth, buckwheat, teff and millet are gluten-free, making them an ideal wheat alternative for individuals with dietary restrictions.
