Forgotten foods or Neglected and Underutilized Crops (NUS), traditionally cultivated among many indigenous communities, are the family of crops that have over time suffered the wrath of food consumption trends and eating habits. However, the industrialization of agriculture pushed them away from the global agricultural and research systems. Though popular for their nutrient-dense value and low input in production, crops, such as pseudocereals, small millets, grain legumes, tuber crops, sea buckthorn, and minor fruits, are referred to as ‘forgotten foods’.
