From the legislative standpoint, foods do not necessarily have a nutritional role, in that they are defined as: any product or substance that is transformed (even partially) or not transformed and that is meant to be ingested by humans (or for which ingestion can be reasonably assumed), excluding such products as pharmaceuticals and tobacco products, among others.
