Grains have been a major diet staple from the beginning of time — and in every civilization.
Breads made from grain are the “staff of life.”
The Bible has hundreds of references to bread and the various grains from which it can be made.
There is also reference to what some of these grains in ancient times were and how their counterparts compare.
We seldom hear about spelt, millet, pulse or maize, although spelt can be found in health food stores today.
Rye, buckwheat, barley, wheat, rice and corn, however, are very familiar.
