Organisms, foods and facts

Unlike other databases, which usually only have foods, foodplanet uses facts, foods and organisms. A food from another database we call fact. A foodplanet food has many facts. From now on, when I talk about foods, I mean foodplanet foods. A food can be assigned an organism if it consists mainly of one “ingredient”. This organism can be a plant, animal, fungus or algae. Sometimes we eat different parts of an organism as individual foods. Eg. we can eat the seeds, flowers or fruits of a pumpkin plant. Therefore, many foods can be assigned to one organism. Not all foods have an organism. In the case of pizza, it doesn’t make sense, because it consists of many different ingredients, which all come from different organisms.
