This page shows details on the project. The primary projects are displayed together with a list of sub-projects.

Project description:Pseudocereals, such a spelt (Triticum aestivum subsp. spelta), amaranthus (Amaranthus), millet (Panicum miliaceum L.), grain sorghum (Sorghum vulgare var. Eusorghum) and buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum Moench.) are characterized by high content of digestible proteins, vitamins, suitable composition of lipids, as well as by significant content of polyphenolic substances and high antioxidant capacity. These crops have been almost forgotten, but they have had mainly in some regions of Slovakia and Slovenia thousand - years long tradition of cultivation and of culinary using. The rise of functional foods can be developed by their using with the combination of conventional raw materials.
