Grain-based foods are based on flour derived from the processed seeds of grain crops (including corn), yielding starch-enriched flours for use in baking and other modes of food preparation. In addition, flours derived from alternative sources such as fruits, vegetables, or nuts (e.g., almonds) are also included. Animal food is excluded from the scope of this report, as are non-grain-based snack foods. Re-exports of grain-based foods are excluded from demand and trade figures.
