Keywords Click a term to view the records with the same keyword
This object has the following keywords:
  • bread - Use generally for cooked food made of dough composed of flour or meal of various plants, water, and other ingredients, with or without the addition of a leavening agent. Use specifically for loaves or cakes of dough made with flour and cooked by baking.
  • cheese - Edible substance consisting of the curd of milk (coagulated by rennet), separated from the whey, and pressed into a solid mass.
  • egg - Material derived from eggs, which in the context of art materials are usually the ellipsoidal shell and embryonic contents produced by birds. For paintings, the egg contents are used as a tempera medium. The whole egg, yolk, or white may be used sometimes mixed with oil and/or resin. The egg yolk is a stable emulsion of an aqueous liquid with an oily, proteinaceous medium which dries quickly into a hard, insoluble film. Egg white has been used as a medium for illuminated manuscripts. It is also used as a size for attaching gold leaf. Albumen is the adhesive substance of egg white. As a pure film, albumen is clear, brittle, and water soluble. Water solubility can be decreased by heating or adding tannin. For the exterior of a bird egg comprising the brittle shell composed of keratin and calcite, use "eggshell (animal material)."
  • food - Any material that can be digested or absorbed by the body of a human or other animal and used as a source of energy or some essential nutrient, to build and replace tissue, or to relieve hunger.
  • meat - The flesh of animals used as food.
  • vegetables - Plants that are cultivated for food, typically restricted to the edible parts of a herbaceous plant (such as leaves, stems, or roots) that are traditionally served as a savory course of a meal.
