Rice is the seed of the monocot plant Oryza sativa, of the grass family (Poaceae). As a cereal grain, it is the most important staple food for a large part of the world's human population, especially in tropical Latin America, the West Indies, East, South and Southeast Asia. It is the grain with the second highest worldwide production, after maize ("corn"). Since a large portion of maize crops are grown for purposes other than human consumption, rice is probably the most important grain with regards to human nutrition and caloric intake, providing more than one fifth of the calories consumed worldwide by the human species. A traditional food plant in Africa, rice has the potential to improve nutrition, boost food security, foster rural development and support sustainable landcare. In early 2008, some governments and retailers began rationing supplies of the grain due to fears of a global rice shortage. The name wild rice is usually used for species of the grass genus Zizania, both wild and domesticated, although the term may also be used for primitive or uncultivated varieties of Oryza. There are many varieties of rice; for many purposes the main distinction is between long-and medium-grain rice. The grains of long-grain rice (high amylose) tend to remain intact after cooking; medium-grain rice (high amylopectin) becomes more sticky. Medium-grain rice is used for sweet dishes, and for risotto and many Spanish dishes. Rice is cooked by boiling or steaming, and absorbs water during cooking. It can be cooked in just as much water as it absorbs (the absorption method), or in a large quantity of water which is drained before serving (the rapid-boil method). Electric rice cookers, popular in Asia and Latin America, simplify the process of cooking rice. Rice is often heated in oil before boiling, or oil is added to the water; this is thought to make the cooked rice less sticky.

Rye (Secale cereale) is a grass grown extensively as a grain and forage crop. It is a member of the wheat tribe (Triticeae) and is closely related to barley and wheat. Rye grain is used for flour, rye bread, rye beer, some whiskies, some vodkas, and animal fodder. It can also be eaten whole, either as boiled rye berries, or by being rolled, similar to rolled oats. Rye is a cereal and should not be confused with ryegrass which is used for lawns, pasture, and hay for livestock. Rye bread, including pumpernickel, is a widely eaten food in Northern and Eastern Europe. Rye is also used to make the familiar crisp bread. Rye flour has a lower gluten content than wheat flour, and contains a higher proportion of soluble fibre. Some other uses of rye include rye whiskey and use as an alternative medicine in a liquid form, known as rye extract. Its benefits are said to include a strengthened immune system, increased energy levels and relief from allergies, but there is no clinical evidence for its efficacy. Rye seems also active in the prevention of prostate cancer. Ergotism is the effect of long-term ergot poisoning, traditionally due to the ingestion of the alkaloids produced by the Claviceps purpurea fungus which infects rye and other cereals, and more recently by the action of a number of ergoline-based drugs. It is also known as ergotoxicosis, ergot poisoning and Saint Anthony's Fire.

Sesame (Sesamum indicum) is a flowering plant in the genus Sesamum. Numerous wild relatives occur in Africa and a smaller number in India. It is widely naturalised in tropical regions around the world and is cultivated for its edible seeds, which grow in pods. The flowers of the sesame seed plant are yellow, though they can vary in colour with some being blue or purple. The word sesame is from Latin sesamum, borrowed from Greek sesamon "seed or fruit of the sesame plant", borrowed from Semitic (cf. Aramaic shumshema, Arabic simsim), from Late Babylonian shawash-shammu, itself from Assyrian shamash-shammu, from shaman shammi "plant oil". In Hindu legends and beliefs, tales are told in which sesame seeds represent a symbol of immortality and the God Maha Vishnu's consort Maha Sri Devi herself representing the properties of the sesame seed, as such it is considered as the most auspicious oil next to Ghee used in Hindu rituals and prayers, the black sesame seeds are used in ancestral homage rituals called Darpanam (also called Tarpana in Kannada) and also the oil to pacify the malefic effect of Lord Shani (Saturn). Women of ancient Babylon would eat halva, a mixture of honey and sesame seeds to prolong youth and beauty, while Roman soldiers ate the mixture for strength and energy. Sesame seeds are rich in manganese, copper, and calcium (90 mg per tablespoon for unhulled seeds, 10 mg for hulled), and contain vitamin B1 (thiamine) and vitamin E (tocopherol). They contain lignans, including unique content of sesamin, which are phytoestrogens with antioxidant and anti-cancer properties. Among edible oils from six plants, sesame oil had the highest antioxidant content. Sesame seeds also contain phytosterols associated with reduced levels of blood cholesterol, but do not contain caffeine. The nutrients of sesame seeds are better absorbed if they are ground or pulverised before consumption, as in tahini.

Sharpham Park is a 300 acre organic estate set deep in the Somerset countryside. The Estate is owned by Roger Saul, the founder of British designer label Mulberry, where we take pride in our sustainable and organic farming techniques. It is here that we grow and mill spelt, an ancient cousin of wheat with many health, taste and nutritional benefits. From this spelt we have created a selection of spelt products: the best organic breakfast cereals, spelt flour, pearled spelt – which makes a great 'speltotto' - and organic spelt biscuits.

The soya bean (Glycine max) is a species of legume native to East Asia. The plant is classed as an oilseed rather than a pulse. It is an annual plant that has been used in China for 5,000 years as a food and a component of drugs. Soya contains significant amounts of all the essential amino acids for humans, which makes soy a good protein source. The plant is sometimes referred to as greater bean or edamame, though the latter is more commonly used in English when referring to a specific dish. The English word soya is derived from the Japanese pronunciation of shoyu, the Japanese word for Soya sauce; soya comes from the Dutch adaptation of the same word. Soya beans are an important source of vegetable oil and protein world wide. Soya products are the main ingredients in many meat and dairy substitutes. They are also used to make soya sauce, and the oil is used in many industrial applications. The main producers of soy are the United States, Brazil, Argentina, China and India. The beans contain significant amounts of alpha-linolenic acid also called Omega-3 fatty acid, and the isoflavones genistein and daidzein. The most important point regarding the use of soya beans for human nutrition is the absolute necessity to cook the soya bean with "wet" heat in order to destroy the trypsin inhibitors; serine protease inhibitors. It is not advisable to eat raw soya beans. Soya beans are considered by many agencies, including the US Food and Drug Administration, to be a source of complete protein. A complete protein is one that contains significant amounts of all the essential amino acids that must be provided to the human body because of the body's inability to synthesise them. For this reason, soya is a good source of protein, amongst many others, for many vegetarians and vegans or for people who cannot afford meat. According to the FDA, "Soya protein products can be good substitutes for animal products because, unlike some other beans, soya offers a "complete" protein profile. Soybeans contain all the amino acids essential to human nutrition, which must be supplied in the diet because they cannot be synthesised by the human body. Soya protein products can replace animal-based foods-which also have complete proteins but tend to contain more fat, especially saturated fat-without requiring major adjustments elsewhere in the diet." Because soya beans contain no starch, they are a good source of protein for diabetics.
