Cereals are one of the healthiest foods in the human diet thanks to their numerous nutritional properties. Proof of this is that they are a staple of all balanced, healthy, natural diets.
Their innumerable health benefits have brought about an increase in cereal production and consumption. At Sociedad Cooperativa Andaluza Campo de Tejada, we have been cereal producers ever since our incorporation, focusing our endeavours mainly on durum wheat, common wheat, triticale and barley, among others.
Cereals have always been a staple food not only for people, but also for livestock, in the form of fodder. Since ancient times, many cultures and peoples have grown cereal thanks to the ease of cultivation and its nutritional properties.
It is important to remember that cereals are an important source of vitamins and minerals, providing the energy we need to go about our daily lives, and with the advantage of a low fat content.
Committed cereal growers
At Campo de Tejada, as cereal growers, we are aware of the health benefits of a cereal-rich diet. For example, they help to balance blood sugar levels, improve intestinal transit thanks to their high fibre content and they improve the general condition of the skin, nails and hair. Furthermore, as they are rich in carbohydrates, proteins and water, they are an essential complement in the diet of old and young alike.
In the case of animals, good cereals improve fodder and other quality animal feed, which is then reflected in the final product.
On the Spanish market, the cereal sector has seen spectacular growth since the 1980s, when cereal consumption was consolidated in the country.
