is our hope that this book offers a focused discussion of cereals and
pulses as important contributors to health, and how we can improve the
quantity and quality of their functional components in the diet
throughout the value chain, i.e. breeding, production, postharvest
storage, and food processing," note editors Lucy Lu, Rong Tsao and
Fereidoon Shahidi in the introductory overview to this survey of
current research findings.
Carbs in the Paleo Diet?
As early as 8,000 years ago, Stone Age farmers across Europe were
working their crop lands intensely, irrigating and strategically

based their study on the chemical composition of charred
cereals and pulses — the edible seeds of legumes —
Neolithic sites spread from Bulgaria to England, dating from 4,400 to

The study’s findings of early intense land management suggest
greater importance of cereals and pulses in the typical European Stone
Age diet and calls into question assumptions of a meat-heavy diet.
