We just have to be aware to the exceptions.
I see the word foods as the same as alimentos in Port.
This link gives a variety of examples how to use the word foods in sentences.
There's also money and moneys
money = dinheiro
monies, also called moneys = verbas
food = comida ( ready for consumption )
foods = alimentos ( food groups like PPAULO explained already )
sugars = açúcares ( there are several different types of sugars available in the market, such as brown sugar, raw sugar, etc. )
sugar = açucar ( that sugar we are using right now, for example, of all the sugars available I prefer turbinado sugar.)
dairy products = laticínios
milk = leite
( milks = verb to milk in the 3rd person singular affirmative )
