Vegetarianism is the practice of not eating meat.
Vegetarians may consume dairy and egg products; a stricter form is veganism, which excludes dairy, eggs, and any foods that contain these or other animal products..
A meat analogue (Also called meat substitute or mock meat) is a food product that approximates the aesthetic qualities and/or chemical characteristics of certain types of meat.
Some meat analogues rely on one or more types of flavouring.
The market for meatless foods includes health-conscious non-vegetarians, lactose-intolerant people, persons following rules of Kashrut, or to address ethical and nutritional issues for vegetarians and vegans..
The food groups are part of a method of classification for the various foods that humans consume in their everyday lives, based on the nutritional properties of these types of foods and their location in a hierarchy of nutrition.
Eating certain amounts and proportions of foods from the different categories is recommended by most guides to healthy eating as one of the most important ways to achieve a healthy lifestyle through diet.
Different food guides vary in the number of categories used to divide types of food, but the majority of them include the following classifications: grain products; vegetables; fruits; dairy products
Saturated fat is fat that consists of triglycerides containing only saturated fatty acids.
Diets high in saturated fat correlate in some studies with an increased incidence of atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease..
Dairy products are generally defined as foodstuffs produced from milk.
A production plant for such processing is called a dairy.
Raw milk for processing generally comes from cows, but occasionally from other mammals such as goats, sheep, water buffalo, yaks, or horses..
