What does the word "Kitniyot" mean?

Kitniyot means legumes and refers to a category of foods such as rice, corn, soybeans, and lentils, which cannot be consumed during Passover by Ashkenazi Jews. Kitniyot is an extension of the prohibition on eating leavened foods such as leavened breads, known as chametz, during Passover (Pesach). The Torah (Bible) prohibits Jews from eating chametz during Passover. Chametz would be leavened foods made from the flour of five species of grain (wheat, spelt, oats, barley, rye).
