What is Food ?

Food is an element that is used to assist an organism in its nutrition. It typically contains important nutrients such as carbohydrates , fats , proteins, vitamins or the minerals. Food is of plant or animal origin.

Healthy foods

The substance is absorbed by an organism and assimilated to the energy, life and growth of the organism by cells. In the past , human beings obtained food by two methods: hunting and raising, while cultivating, which gave modern humans a largely omnivorous diet.

Many kitchens, including a vast variety of ingredients, plants, spices, techniques and dishes have been developed worldwide.

Today, the food industry supplies much of the food power required by the increasing population of the world.

Agencies such as the International Food Conservation Organisation, the World Center for Finance, the World Food Programme, the Food and Agriculture Agency, and the International Food Information Council are tracking food security and food quality.

They deal with problems such as ecology, biodiversity, climatic change , economic security, population development , water availability, and food access.

The right to food is a human right stemming from the ICESCR, which acknowledges ‘the right to decent living conditions including sufficient food’ and ‘the universal right to freedom from hunger.’
