Nutritional aspects of cereal crops include being rich in carbohydrates, fiber, and, in some cases, protein and vitamins. The grain of these cereals, such as brown rice or whole wheat, often retains more nutrients compared to processed forms, emphasizing the importance of whole grains in diet.

The term cereal in common usage also extends to breakfast cereals, which are processed food products made from roasted or boiled grains. On the other hand, grain encompasses a wider range of seeds, including those from non-cereal plants like quinoa and amaranth, used in various culinary contexts.

From a botanical perspective, cereal plants are members of the Poaceae or grass family, specifically cultivated for their edible grains. Grain, in contrast, can be referred to as the fruit of these plants, technically known as a caryopsis, where the seed coat is fused with the fruit wall.
