Abstract

We cannot live without food. The body draws nutrients from the food to build cells. Food gives us the energy we need to do the activity. With food we satisfies our physical and physiological needs. In addition, food has a strong emotional effect. We don't just eat food because we are hungry. Food gives us a sense of satisfaction, comfort and happiness. In order for end users to eat healthy, food manufacturers and sellers must, among other things, meet some of the economic demands placed on them by today's market.
