Nutritional Value & Quality of Foods

People stopped living on fresh food alone a long time ago. The nutritional value of food defines what a food is made of and its' impact on the body. Because of disease and weight control, it's particularly important to understand the nutritional value of food due to the impact on the body as it relates to cholesterol, fat, salt, and sugar intake. Judging food quality by appearance is tricky, because plumpness could mean that it's been pumped up with water and nitrogen and therefore may not fully ripen.

To provide sufficient food of good quality during other times of the year as well, a variety of techniques were developed to extend shelf life: Drying, salting, smoking and, later, cooling and freezing. While most of these preservation techniques are centuries old and low-tech, advanced technological progress has considerably expanded them over the last half century.
