What is Food?
We can define “food” as a healthy product suitable for eating, coming from the animal, vegetable, or mineral world.
It can be used already in origin or be transformed and made more edible. It provides macroelements, microelements, trace elements, or ultra-trace elements, beneficial for human sustenance.
Function of Food
Throughout history, from the dawn to the present day, food has undergone more and more steps and deeper manipulations before arriving at our table and being eaten, with advantages and disadvantages for health.
With the term “nutrition,” we identify the foods available to be eaten, with their specific theoretical nutritional characteristics”.
With the term “nutrition,” we mean instead of the actual contribution of nutritive principles that, once eaten, digested, absorbed by our body, can be used by our cells and enter our metabolism.
As you can see, not only the products must be “good food”, but also those who consume them must be able to “digest and activate them” in an optimal way so that they ensure true well-being to our cells.
Eating quickly, neglecting a prolonged period of chewing and salivation, exaggerating the intake of dietary fiber, using nutritional supplements in an uncontrolled way can change even a lot the possibility of properly use the nutrients provided by food.
Following food fashions or diets strongly unbalanced not only involves a deficit of essential nutrients but can put our body in a condition of not absorbing in an optimal way even those food principles that such diets, not scientifically approved, can theoretically bring.
