Today’s Word: provide

☆  provide  提供する


If you provide something that someone needs or wants, you give it to them or make it available to them. Similar to enriching foods that we talked about earlier in the week, often food producers include additives in foods to maintain the food’s nutritional value. These additives are supposed to provide nutrients, and can help the food stay fresh for longer.

Even though these additives may provide benefits, I still think it is better to get these nutrients and benefits from unprocessed foods. What do you think? Do you agree? Are processed foods popular in Japan? In Australian supermarkets, most of the things you can buy are just processed foods claiming to provide nutritional benefits. Unfortunately, it’s actually getting hard to find unprocessed foods!
