A Few Words about Food

Food is any substance that, by absorption in the human body, contributes to the preservation of its homeostasis. Food in the narrow sense consists of the following ingredients: Carbohydrates, Proteins, Fats, Vitamins, and Minerals. Food allows a person to perform daily activities. When we talk about food, we often divide it into food of animal and plant origin. In pre-industrial society, man grew his own food, and sometimes even sold it (markets have always existed), while today a smaller part of society is engaged in food production. Today are developed: meat industry, dairy industry, fishing industry, and bakery industry.
