Ancient Grains


CALGARY — Researchers at the University of Calgary recently published a paper that suggests today’s modern chefs and bakers have significantly older ancestors to thank for the adoption of grains and cereals into our diet than originally thought. According to the report, previous research pegged the human reliance on grain at about 20,000 years old, while these new archeological discoveries, made in Southeastern Africa by Julio Mercader, push that number back a further 80,000 years.
