    Actually, cereals are wheat, rice, barley, rye, triticale (it's a hybrid of wheat and rye), and oat.

    Well, I forgot to include two popular cereal species, millet and sorghum. I gave you a list of the most popular species, there are more of them. You can learn about cereals from Wikipedia.

    Best

    PS. I suppose triticale is not common in America, but it's a quite important cereal in Poland.
