Grains play a major role in the diets of people from around the globe, providing energy and a wide range of essential nutrients and beneficial healthy phytochemicals. Recently, great interest has been paid to several aspects of nutrition related to grain consumption. These include low carbohydrate diets; gluten free foods; whole grains and health; and remerging “ancient” grains, pulses, and pseudo-cereals. I strongly encourage you to submit your most recent advances in these and related areas of grains and health, with the prospect of presenting a cutting-edge and fascinating update on this important topic in this very Special Issue. Thanking you in anticipation.
