The Definition of Food

Good evening all,

The definition of food straight out of the dictionary resembles something like this;

  • material consisting essentially of protein, carbohydrate, and fat used in the body of an organism to sustain growth, repair, and vital processes and to furnish energy
  • nutriment in solid form                                                                    
  • something that nourishes, sustains, or supplies


Seems straight forward enough.  

What if I told you that up to 40% of the stock on offer in your local supermarket, does not even meet the definition of 'food'.

That's right, you heard.  40% of the goods passed off to consumers as edible can't even meet the pretty generic and generous definition of food.

Scary times we live in people.  Your choices today dictate your future.  Choose wisely my friends.

Yours in good eating
