Alan's Food Gateway

Food is any substance, usually composed primarily of carbohydrates, fats, minerals, water and/or proteins, that can be eaten or drunk for nutrition or pleasure.

Food Gateway from AlansKitchen.comItems considered food may be sourced from plants, animals or other categories such as fungus. Ranching, and fishing, hunting, foraging and other methods are ways to obtain food.

Most traditions have a recognizable cuisine, a specific set of cooking traditions, preferences, and practices, the study of which is known as gastronomy.

Many cultures have diversified their foods by means of preparation, cooking methods and manufacturing.

This also includes a complex food trade which helps the cultures to economically survive by-way-of food, not just by consumption.

Many cultures study the dietary analysis of food habits. While humans are meat-eaters, religion and social constructs such as morality often affect which foods they will consume.  Food safety is also a concern with foodborne illness claiming many lives each year.  In English, the substance food is often used metaphorically or figuratively, as in food for thought.
