Groats are one of the oldest human food products. For centuries, they have formed the basis of the daily diet of Ukrainians. Our ancestors used them to make soups, served them as an addition to borscht, and ate them sweet with dried fruits.


How did groats appear on our tables?


Barley and millet were the first to appear on our tables. Only centuries later, buckwheat came to our country, and relatively recently, corn grits, semolina and couscous appeared on our market.




Millet is obtained from peeled millet grain. Its name comes from the Proto-Slavic word jagla (more often in the plural jagla), which means millet. Millet was a characteristic original dish of the old Ukrainian cuisine. Most often it was served with the addition of butter or cracklings, or covered with hot sweet milk. The hostesses used millet for making pancakes, filling for dumplings, stuffed cabbage and others. Some ate it as a dessert, sweet with cheese or dried fruit.




Buckwheat is made from hulled buckwheat seeds. In Ukrainian culinary traditions, it was highly appreciated by gourmets. The most popular was the dark fried buckwheat. Most often it was eaten raw, with the addition of cracklings, yogurt or whey, and was associated primarily with a simple peasant table. Over time, it appeared on gourmet tables, where it was served after overly nourishing and very sophisticated dishes, as an innovative and extravagant dish.



The use of cereals in Ukrainian cuisine


All types of cereals were widely used in Ukrainian cuisine, both among peasants and in the homes of wealthy aristocrats. They were eaten as separate dishes with various additives (milk, greaves, mushrooms, cabbage). On their basis, various types of soups, cereals and noodles were prepared. Groats, especially buckwheat and pearl barley, were added to various types of meat. For breakfast, children were often given semolina porridge with milk or millet puree with yolk.

The real benefits of cereals were only discovered in the second half of the 20th century, and since then they have found many enthusiasts around the world. In addition to being prized, especially by people who avoid meat, vegetable protein, starch and minerals such as potassium, magnesium and phosphorus, as well as B vitamins, they are high in dietary fiber that detoxifies the body ...
