Types of Food | Vocabulary | EnglishClub

There are many different types of food.   Fresh food is the products that have been subjected to any form of heat or chemical processing or have not been preserved and have not spoiled yet. Regarding vegetables and fruits, the term fresh means that they have been recently harvested and treated properly after they had been harvested. For meat, the term fresh is used when it has recently been slaughtered and butchered, and for fish, when it has been recently caught or harvested and kept cold. Frozen food has been subjected to rapid freezing and is kept frozen until used. Also, foods that are quickly frozen while still fresh can be called frozen fresh or fresh frozen. Canned or pasteurized food is food products that have been hermetically sealed and processed by heat to prevent spoilage.  Canned or pasteurized can be packed in glass or plastic bottles or jars, or metal containers. Dried or dehydrated food is a product that undergoes a drying process, a method of food preservation that works by removing water from the food, which inhibits the growth of bacteria and other microorganisms. Freeze-dried food is made by using a process called lyophilization, in which the temperature of the product is lowered to below freezing, and then a high-pressure vacuum is applied to extract the water in the form of vapor.  Fresh foods are nutrient-rich in their natural state without processing and have no additives, preservatives, added sugar, sodium, fat. Canned foods may be less expensive than other forms and have a long shelf life. Frozen food products also have a long shelf life and do not require any added preservatives because bacteria and microorganisms do not grow when the temperature of the food is low, which is sufficient on its own in preventing food spoilage. Freeze dries foods are picked and frozen at the peak of ripeness to enhance flavor and nutrient value and has a longer shelf life compared with foods preserved by other methods.
