Welcome to Five Course Trivia! Five days a week, we’ll post five questions about something from the culinary world, from soup to nuts and all dishes in between.
There was a Food/Drink question, so let’s talk about that.
Learned League precedent (LL71, MD20) – What term for the outer layers of cereal grains is commonly found in grocery cereal aisles, as it is often added to many commercial breakfast cereals and also can be purchased separately?
I wasn’t 100% sure on it, but the only word I knew that is in many cereal names and has something do to with wheat is bran, which bumps me up to 5 for 8.
I know bran is already an exciting topic, but we’ll be asking about seeds instead. I *think* bran is a part of the wheat seed, and that wheat seed is a proper term, but no matter. Enjoy!
