Foods play an important role in the maintenance of human health. Food is a permanent need so that what is consumed by internal and external factors would be replaced. It is evident that without having an appropriate nutrition, it is not possible to be healthy. Proper nutrition and cure through food have been emphasized in the Traditional Iranian Medicine (TIM) such that the great Iranian physician of the 10th century, Razi, considered modification or prescription of diet as the first therapeutic modality. In some of the TIM manuscripts, some qualities and functions have been specified for foods, some of which are consistent with modern sciences, and there are no equivalents for some of them in modern sciences. In this paper, we have accurately described the classification of foods in the TIM textbooks, and tried to compare the TIM definitions with terminology of modern nutrition science. Furthermore, the common items between TIM and traditional Chinese medicine were addressed.
Keywords: Traditional Iranian Medicine, Chinese traditional medicine, Food, Kasirolghaza, Ghalilolghaza, Medicinal foods.
