Is Rye Bread From Ryegrass Seeds

Q: Is rye bread made from the seed of ryegrass(CQ) as we plant in our lawn?

A: No. The rye from which bread is made is Secale cereal. It is related to wheat and barley. The ryegrass(CQ) you plant in your lawn is either perennial ryegrass, Lolium perenne, or annual ryegrass, Lolium multiflorum. I’ve never had bread made from them but I don’t imagine it would taste very good.
