seeds are considered better for the staple food then the vegetative part of the plant .why?

Dear Student,

Seeds are considered better for the staple food because they are the richest source of important nutrients called carbohydrates, oils and proteins. They provide more than half of the dietary protein supply. You have to intake very less quantity of seeds as compared to other vegetative parts. Also, they are more durable as compared to other staple foods, such as starchy fruits and tubers. Some fruits are the rich source of carbohydrates (sugars) but contain very small quantities of proteins and fats. Similarly, leaves, stems and flowers are the rich source of vitamins but contain very small quantities of starch or carbohydrates. But seeds contain all the necessary vitamins, oils, proteins along with sufficient quantity of starch.

Regards
