Brief history of cereals and legumes

Cereals have been the basis of humanity’s diet for approximately 15,000 years.

They contain many mineral salts, vitamins and essential amino acids forming the protein chains essential for the proper functioning of our body.

The “so-called official” science dates the appearance of cereals and their introduction into agriculture approximately 11,000 BC, which required at the time a knowledge of seasonal cycles and the adapted tools necessary for their cultivation.

The first cereals such as barley, wheat and spelt would have appeared from wild species (hybrids).

The same goes for legumes.

We believe that cereals and legumes actually appeared about 30,000 years ago in Mesopotamia (part of the Middle East) with the Sumerian civilization.

Cereal seeds and their cultivation spread rapidly to other continents such as Central Europe, Africa, Asia, Oceania and the Americas.
