About us

Food is any substance that is consumed to provide nutritional support to an organism. Food is usually of vegetable, animal, or fungal origin, and contains essential nutrients, such as carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins or minerals. The substance is ingested by the organism and absorbed by the cells of the organism to provide energy, preserve life or stimulate growth. Different species of animals have different feeding behaviors that meet the needs of their unique metabolisms, which often evolve to fill a specific ecological niche within specific geographic contexts.
