Grains versus Seeds

All grains are seeds, but not all seeds are grains. Beans, nuts, and “seeds” are also all seeds!

By definition, a seed is a “flowering plant’s unit of reproduction, capable of developing into another such plant”. Grains (cereals) grow from the seeds of grasses. Nuts grow from the seeds of trees. And seeds (pseudocereals or other “seeds”) grow from the seeds of non-grasses. 

For example: 

  • Wheat, corn, oats and rice are all seeds, further classified as Grains
  • Amaranth, quinoa, and buckwheat are all seeds, further classified as Pseudocereals
  • Chia, sunflower, sesame, pumpkin are all seeds, classified as Seeds. 

True Cereals versus Pseudocereals

Grains are commonly called cereals. There are two types of grains: true cereals and pseudocereals. True cereals are mostly grasses, and pseudocereals are non-grasses but used in much the same way as cereals. 

Examples of True Cereals: 

  • Wheat
  • Corn
  • Rice
  • Barley
  • Sorghum
  • Millet
  • Rye
  • Oats
  • Teff
  • Spelt

Examples of Pseudocereals:

  • Amaranth
  • Quinoa / Kaniwa
  • Buckweat

Onset Worldwide has officially been certified as a partner in the C-TPAT program! 

The Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) program is a voluntary supply chain security program, launched by US Customs and Border Protection in 2001. The partnerships allow for better risk assessment and establishes clear supply chain security criteria for members to meet.

Certified members are considered to be of low risk, and are therefore less likely to be examined at the US port of entry. For more details check out their website here
