The broad term ‘cereals’ includes any grass whose starchy grains are used as food, e.g. wheat, rice, rye, oats, maize, buckwheat and millet. However, in developed countries, the cereal group also includes food products manufactured from grains, e.g. bread, pasta, ready-to-eat cereals (RTEC), pizza, biscuits, cakes and pastry. This article looks at the main cereals consumed in the UK, their contribution to the diet, and what health benefits have been associated with their consumption."
