These references are to headwords. Not all headwords are included, and some may be included in more than one list.
For this purpose the whole mass of entries has been divided into four large categories. First come food plants (including fungi) and primary products derived from them. The second category is of animals, birds, and fish, etc. and products derived directly from them. Third come cooked foods and dishes of various kinds including beverages—broadly speaking, what may be put on the table for consumption other than raw foods such as fruit. The fourth category includes entries to do with culture, religion, meals, diet, and the large number of entries on national and regional cuisines.
