     Animal Fats: What are they?

“Animal fats and oils are lipid materials derived from animals. Physically, oils are liquid at room temperature, and fats are solid. Chemically, both fats and oils are composed of triglycerides. Although many animal parts and secretions may yield oil, in commercial practice, oil is extracted primarily from rendered tissue fats obtained from livestock animals like pigs, chickens and cows. Dairy products also yield popular animal fat and oil products such as cheese, butter, and milk.”

  Cereals: What are they?


“A cereal is any grass cultivated (grown) for the edible components of its grain (botanically, a type of fruit called a caryopsis), composed of the endosperm, germ, and bran. The term may also refer to the resulting grain itself (specifically “cereal grain“). Cereal grain crops are grown in greater quantities and provide more food energy worldwide than any other type of crop  and are therefore staple crops.”


    Oil Crops: What are they?


 “Oil Crops include both annual (usually called oilseeds) and perennial plants whose seeds, fruits or mesocarp and nuts are valued mainly for the edible or industrial oils that are extracted from them. … In the case of several other crops, both the pulp of the fruit and the kernels are used for oil.”


     Tree nuts: What are they?


“Tree nuts grow on trees.  they include: almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, pecans, pistachios and walnuts. … They also usually tolerate macadamia nut and pine nut, which are also both seeds.”


    Spices: What are they?


“A spice is a seed, fruit, root, bark, or other plant substance primarily used for flavoring, coloring or preserving food. Spices are distinguished from herbs, which are the leaves, flowers, or stems of plants used for flavoring or as a garnish”.


     Vegetable oil: What are they?


“Vegetable oils, or vegetable fats, are oils extracted from seeds, or less often, from other parts of fruits. Like animal fats, vegetable fats are mixtures of triglycerides. Soybean oil, rapeseed oil, and cocoa butter are examples of fats from seeds.”      


      Vegetables: What are they?


“Vegetables are parts of plants that are consumed by humans or other animals as food. The original meaning is still commonly used and is applied to plants collectively to refer to all edible plant matter, including the flowers, fruits, stems, leaves, roots, and seeds.”


     Sugar and Sweeteners: What are they?


“Sugar is the generic name for sweet-tasting, soluble carbohydrates, many of which are used in food. Table sugar, granulated sugar, or regular sugar, refers to sucrose, a disaccharide composed of glucose and fructose. By law in the United States sucrose is the only substance which can be called “sugar” on food labels”
“Sweetener: is a sugar substitute is a food additive that provides a sweet taste like that of sugar while containing significantly less food energy than sugar-based sweeteners, making it a zero-calorie or low-calorie sweetener.”
