from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nutrients is a generic term for dry products made from cereals , starch or pulses . Food is considered to be food that is not normally used for the production of bread and fine baked goods . The name comes from the root of the word “nathan”, which is derived from (Old High German) nerian or Middle High German nern , which means something like “kept alive”. In this respect, all foods would be nutrients. In the technical sense, however, nutrients are exclusively products whose raw materials are processed in a peeling or flour mill.
