Ancient grains have been a trending whole food staple promoted since the mid-90's. What are ancient grains? The term is not scientific but one that describes some of the original strains of staple grain crops that have been cultivated since the days of early agriculture. This was a time, indicated by archaeological evidence, that occurred about 10,000 or more years ago. Humans before this period were hunter-gatherers living a more nomadic lifestyle in small populations. The development of plant-based crop cultivation, as well as animal domestication, is what largely encouraged a sedentary lifestyle and the expansion of human society.
