Abstract:
Abstract: Cereals and pasta are good sources of food energy at relatively low cost. Cereals and cereal products are widely used in combination dishes, breads, cookies, and pastry. Whole grain cereals and pasta furnish a number of nutrients; whole grains add fibers to the diet. Pasta, in combination with other protein foods, helps stretch the food dollar. The bulletin is a guide to buying, storing and cooking cereals and pasta. Recipes feature cereals and pasta in appetizers, main dishes, meat accompaniments, salads, soups, breads, and desserts. Recipes are included for making homemade noodles and ravioli. The buying, storage and cooking guidelines for cereals include breakfast cereals, rice products, cornmeal and hominy grits, and bulgur. Pasta varieties are explained.
