Mensagem:  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 )
