What Are Cereals
Cereals or grains belong to the monocot families Poaceae or Gramineae and are cultivated widely to obtain the edible components of their fruit seeds. Botanically, these fruits are called caryopsis and are structurally divided into endosperm, germ, and bran. Cereal grains are cultivated in huge quantities and provide more food energy than any other type of crop, therefore, they are known as staple crops.
