Semi-protected edit request on 26 February 2020[edit]

Please move the "Foods from plant sources" image from the introduction down into the "Plants" section, or please move the "Various raw meats" image from the "Animals" section up into the introduction, just below the foods from plant sources. (talk) 14:10, 26 February 2020 (UTC)

Scope of the article: Food in general or food for humans?[edit]

The article starts with

Food is any substance consumed to provide nutritional support for an organism.

Which I understand to mean the article is supposed to treat food for all organisms. But the rest of the article treats "only" food for humans. To me this seams wrong.

I see at least the following options to resolve that:

  1. Restrict the current article to food for humans and make that clear in the introduction. Than have separate articles for animal food, plant food, … Link to those articles from food (disambiguation).
  2. add at least overview information about food of other organisms to the article.

What would be the best way forward? Thanks, --S.K. (talk) 03:36, 15 May 2020 (UTC)

Types of food[edit]

This subheading is not necessary and should be removed, because of another subheading called the classification and types of food. Any type of food that is not listed in the classification and types of food should be added to the list. Space chinedu (talk) 12:16, 4 August 2020 (UTC)

add to functional food definition

Functional Food Center coined the term for functional food as a natural or processed foods that contain biologically-active compounds; which, in defined, effective, non-toxic amounts, provide a clinically proven and documented health benefit utilizing specific biomarkers, for improving general health, for the prevention, management, or treatment of chronic disease or its symptoms. This has been the go-to definition used by many scientists. <></> AutumnAAllen (talk) 21:51, 12 October 2020 (UTC)

@AutumnAAllen: Hi! We don't include neologisms until they have become established in the scholarship. Please consider aggregating more sources that work with that definition, Sadads (talk) 23:14, 12 October 2020 (UTC)
