Food, Fortified definition: Any food that has been supplemented with essential nutrients either in quantities that are greater than those present normally, or which are not present in the fortified food. The supplementation of cereals with iron and vitamins is an example of fortified food. Fortified food includes also enriched food to which various nutrients have been added to compensate for those essential nutrients removed by refinement or processing. (From Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)

Fast Foods definition: Prepared food that is ready to eat or partially prepared food that has a final preparation time of a few minutes or less.
Food and Beverages definition: Edible or potable substances.
food chain definition: transfer of energy and matter through various stages as a result of the feeding patterns of a series of organisms; food chains intertwine locally into a food web because most organisms consume more than one type of animal or plant; plants, which convert solar energy to food by photosynthesis, are the primary food source.
Food Chain definition: The sequence of transfers of matter and energy from organism to organism in the form of FOOD. Food chains intertwine locally into a food web because most organisms consume more than one type of animal or plant. PLANTS, which convert SOLAR ENERGY to food by PHOTOSYNTHESIS, are the primary food source. In a predator chain, a plant-eating animal is eaten by a larger animal. In a parasite chain, a smaller organism consumes part of a larger host and may itself be parasitized by smaller organisms. In a saprophytic chain, microorganisms live on dead organic matter.

Calorie definition: A non-SI unit of energy defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one kilogram of pure water by one degree Centigrade under standard conditions (the specific heat of the water at 15 degrees Celsius and the constant pressure of 101.325 kPa or one atm being defined as unity), equal to approximately 4.1855 kJ. It is also is used by nutritionists in measuring the energy-producing potential of food as a unit of potential energy contained by a substance, which can be liberated when the material is oxidized, usually by combustion in the presence of oxygen. According to the current national standard in the United States (IEEE/ASTM SI 10 TM-2002. American National Standard for Use of the International System of Units (SI): The Modern Metric System, New York: IEEE, 2002) the calorie in any form is not to be used. Joules should be used instead.
Kilocalorie definition: The amount of energy needed to increase the temperature of 1 kilogram of water by 1 degree Celsius. 1 Kilocalorie = 4.185 kJ.
kcal definition: A unit of energy defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one kilogram of pure water by one degree Centigrade under standard conditions (the specific heat of the water at 15 degrees Celsius and the constant pressure of 101.325 kilopascals or one atm being defined as unity), equal to approximately 4.1855 kJ. It is also is used by nutritionists in measuring the energy-producing potential of food as a unit of potential energy contained by a substance, which can be liberated when the material is oxidized, usually by combustion in the presence of oxygen.(NCI)
