Grain cereal-Pulses-Oil seeds

 

Grain is the the hard seed or fruit most commonly associated with cereal grasses. You are probably familiar with corn, wheat, oats, rice, rye, and flax, which are all grains. Grain could potentially be considered the first link in the food chain because it is the base of a majority of the foods you eat and products you buy.

 

Pulses are the edible seeds of plants in the legume family. Pulses grow in pods and come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) recognizes 11 types of pulses: dry beans, dry broad beans, dry peas, chickpeas, cow peas, pigeon peas, lentils, Bambara beans, vetches, lupins and pulses nes (not elsewhere specified – minor pulses that don’t fall into one of the other categories). Pulses are annual crops that yield between one and 12 grains or seeds. The term “pulses” is limited to crops harvested solely as dry grains, which differentiates them from other vegetable crops that are harvested while still green.

 

Like pulses, oil seeds nuts are rich in protein and in addition they contain a high level of fat. Hence they are not only good sources of protein but are concentrated source of energy. They do not contain an appreciable amount of carbohydrate but contain high level of B-vitamins. Groundnuts are particularly rich in thiamine and nicotinic acid. Oil seeds produced in the country are mostly used for oil extraction. The protein of Soyabean yields all the essential amino acids in adequate amounts except methionine and cystine, which are deficient. Soyabean is rich in lysine and can be used to supplement a staple rice diet. Studies have established that soyabean reduces blood cholesterol.

Brassica napus Linnaeus—known as rapeseed, rape, oilseed rape, and in some cultivars, Canola—is a bright yellow flowering member of the Brassicacea family (mustard or cabbage family). It is a mustard crop grown primarily for its seed which yields about forty percent oil and a high-protein animal feed.

Since 1991, virtually all rapeseed production in the European Union has shifted to rapeseed 00 (double zero), with low content of erucic acid and low content of glucosinolates.
