Ancient grains are a grouping of grains and pseudocereals that are considered to have been little changed by selective breeding over recent millennia, as opposed to more widespread cereals such as corn, rice and modern varieties of wheat, which are the product of thousands of years of selective breeding.

Occupational hazards of grain facilities

occupational hazards and exposures
Those who handle grain at grain facilities may encounter numerous occupational hazards and exposures.
Grain entrapment, occurs when victims are partially submerged in grain and are unable to remove themselves; grain engulfment occurs when victims are completely submerged in grain and unable to remove themselves.

Dust explosion

Risks include grain entrapment, where workers are submerged in the grain and unable to remove themselves; explosions caused by fine particles of grain dust, and falls.
In addition, many otherwise mundane organic materials can also be dispersed into a dangerous dust cloud, such as grain, flour, starch, sugar, powdered milk, cocoa, coffee, and pollen.

List of dried foods

List of dried foods
Grain consists of wheat, corn, soybean, rice, and other grains as sorghum, sunflower seeds, rapeseed/canola, barley, oats, etc. are dried in grain dryers. In the main agricultural countries, drying comprises the reduction of moisture from about 17–30% to 8-15%, depending on the grain. The final moisture content for drying must be adequate for storage. Additional grains include lentils, wild rice, chick peas, and millet.
