Photographer's Note

If you live in an urban high-rise building, you might assume that you have very little to do with grass of any sort. However, almost all of us have daily contact with some type of grass and the products made from it.

Try to remember what you ate today. Did you start with a bowl of cereal made with millet, rice, oats, or sorghum? Well, then, you ate grass seeds. Or perhaps you had a roll or other kind of bread. The flour used was made from grass kernels—wheat, rye, barley, and other grains are all grasses. Cornflakes and corn pudding as well as tortillas made from corn flour are no exception. Corn, or maize, is—you guessed it—a grass too. You had sugar in your tea or coffee? More than half of all sugar is made from sugarcane, a grass. Even milk and cheese are in a sense processed grass, as that is what cows, sheep, and goats usually feed on.

Mogloby sie zdawac, ze mieszkaniec wielopietrowego budynku w miescie raczej niewiele korzysta z trawy.
A jednak prawie wszyscy dzien w dzien mamy z nia do czynienia - i z roznymi wytwarzanymi z niej produktami.

Co dzis jadles? Zaczales dzien od platkow owsianych, kukurydzianych, kaszy manny lub ryzu? W takim razie twoje sniadanie skladalo sie z ziaren zboz czyli traw. Jadles chleb albo bulki? Pieczywo robi sie ze zmielonych ziaren przenicy, zyta i jeczmienia, a to takze trawy. Poslodziles sobie kawe badz herbate? Przeszlo polowe produkowanego na swiecie cukru otrzymuje sie z trzciny cukrowej, bedacej trawa. Mleko i sery tez posrednio pochodza z trawy, gdyz jest ona glownym pozywieniem krow, owiec i koz.
