How We Categorize Food?
When categorizing food, what do you think of, or how might you categorize it? Perhaps the ingredients, physical state of matter (i.e. Solid, liquid, gel, etc.), texture, the food pyramid, or where it might be found in a grocery store. There are hundreds if not thousands of ways to categorize food. Food is highly complex meaning that foods are typically not one pure substance, but instead mixtures of various substances.
There are 4 main categories of food: water, fats/oils, carbohydrates, and proteins.
