 Materials and Methods: With reference to the digital versions of the Quran, to the related interpretations and to the search of terms related to nutrition, including food, wine, Alcohol and its derivatives, the related verses were collected based on related topics and the comments of commentators.
 Findings: totally, the word “Ta’am” (food) and its derivatives, “Akal” (eating) and the word “Sharab” (wine) have been repeated 48, 107 and 39 times, respectively. In addition, the general principle of lawful food (Halal) is directly pointed 6 times among verses related to food. Among different interpretations of the Quran, the importance of body feeding is emphasized than spirit feeding.
