In the present paper we will briefly review existing knowledge on the distribution and transport pathways of iron in the two small grained cereals, barley and wheat, and focus on the efforts made to increase the iron content in cereals in general. However, mineral content is not the only factor of relevance for improving the nutritional status of poor populations. It is thus well documented that a number of plant components can act either as promoters or inhibitors of mineral uptake in the human digestive system (Frossard et al.

The nutritional impact of increasing mineral content accordingly has to be seen in the context of mineral bioavailability. Finally, we will briefly report on recent data from barley, where laser capture microdissection of the different grain tissues combined with gene expression profiling has provided some insight into metal transport and deposition (Tauris et al. 2009).
