Grains make up 45% of the world’s diet. However, the majority of our plant-derived food is provided by only three grains. As health-conscious eating has risen, diets have changed bringing quinoa, and latterly ‘teff’ into the mainstream.

This resource from the Royal Geographical Society explores the impact of our reliance on grains, the growth of ‘superfoods’ and studies the role of the grain teff in Ethiopian farming.
