 Staple food - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A staple food is basic but nutritious food that forms the basis of a traditional diet, particularly that of the poor.
Although nutritious, staple foods generally do not by themselves provide a full range of nutrients, so other foods need to be added to the diet to prevent malnutrition.
Staple foods vary from place to place, but are usually of vegetable origin, from cereals, pulses, corn, rice, millets and plants growing starchy roots.

 The Food of the Ancient Egyptians
The staple food was bread and beer, supplemented by onions or other vegetables and dried fish.
While the food of the common people was barely adequate at best, and during the recurring corn dearths sadly lacking, the affluent certainly knew how to live it up: Meat, water fowls, vegetables, fruit and wine were part of their diet, as was the ubiquitous bread in one of its many guises.
The food was eaten with the tips of the fingers and the diners cleaned their hands in little water bowls at the end of the repast.

 Buddhist Monastic Code I: Chapter 8: Pacittiya
The wise policy in such a case, though, would be to treat the meal as if it did contain staple foods with reference to the rules (Pacittiya 33 and 35) that aim at saving face for the donor.
Thus, a bhikkhu who eats food in the wrong time unknowingly — e.g., assuming that noon has not passed when it actually has, or that the food belongs to one of the other classes of edibles when it actually doesn't — commits an offense all the same.
Thus in cases where the bhikkhu is not giving away the food and has not abandoned interest in it — and the unordained person is not stealing it — there is no reason to hold that "given" food becomes "ungiven" simply when an unordained person touches or moves it.

 Nutrition Reviews: Staple food fortification with iron: A multifactorial decision / Discussion   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Fortification of staple foods is an adequate strategy to provide additional iron to populations.
Iron is a reactive compound, whose level in foods is limited because iron causes negative changes in the original properties of the food that is being fortified.
For example, analyzing the consumption and nutritional composition of tortilla made with nixtamalized corn flour (NCF), it is calculated that on average this food provides between 18 and 55% of the RDI for iron.

 The staple food
The staple food among the lower orders in Anglo-Saxon and the immediately succeeding times was doubtless bread, butter, and cheese, the aliment which goes so far even yet to support our rural population, with vegetables and fruit, and occasional allowances of salted bacon and pancakes, beef, or fish.
The meat was usually boiled in a kettle suspended on a tripod [Footnote: The tripod is still employed in many parts of the country for a similar purpose] over a wood-fire, such as is used only now, in an improved shape, for fish and soup.
There is something in the nature of this food so peculiarly satisfying and supporting, that it seems to have been destined to become the staple nourishment of a poor population in a cold and bracing climate.

 Selection of quality Australian barley for the Japanese staple food market.
The first step towards improved selection of grain for the Japanese staple market is to measure pearling quality, since pearling is performed prior to the production of three important Japanese food products: miso, rice extender and shochu.
Although malting barley meets many specifications for the Japanese food market, such as low screenings and protein content, variation within a single batch of grain may seriously affect pearling quality and downstream processing, particularly shochu manufacture.
