Food Glossary

Keerthana Jagadeesh, Amrutraj R. Benahal | 2022


Urban studies look at food in a broad perspective. Since existent glossaries on food are biased towards cooking, nutrition, and culinary arts, the necessity to compile a more expansive glossary on food was felt. The Dictionary of Food Science and Nutrition, Glossary on Right to Food (2009) and Food Control System Assessment Tool: Introduction and Glossary were the main sources consulted. Additionally, various online resources, particularly the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), were used for out of context definitions. The glossary contains 76 terms, with the right to food, agriculture and food production, and nutrition being the main themes.
