How does Italian religion affect its food?
it all depends on where in Italy your talking about ( :
Most religions specify foods that they believe their followers should not eat. Sometimes there is a time/day element to the prohibition and sometimes it is a blanket ban on a …particular animal. I am not aware of any religion that specifies that one must eat a particular food, it always seems to be what one must not eat.
The religion that Italians have is mostly Catholicism even thoughthere a lot of religious minorities such as Islam and Judaism.
Christians. Most Italians are Roman Catholic.
It's said to have encouraged a great culture of family.
i guess tht the world is just mesed up and yeh thts why :)
Religion has a big influence of the way Italians eat. Well not really, it makes no difference to them atall . Actually religion does make a impact on the way Italian eat. I…tdoesn't effect their daily lives but on special occasions such asGood Friday and Christmas, many traditional Italians are influencedto follow some Catholic ideas. Although this may be known, on GoodFriday they do not eat meat. They also do not put vinegar on theirsalads on good Friday, this is because pone time Jesus was tiredand asked someone for water, instead they gave him vinegar. OnChristmas lamb is typically eaten for dinner, this is not becauseof a popular meal choice but because it comes from the lyric "lambof God you take away the sins...". Hope this helped!
Religion and itsassociation with food in Spain In Spain, Thereare many different influences on how the food is made and what isin it. One of these influences happens to be …religion. 70% ofpeople in Spain are actually Roman Catholic. 25% of the populationis Atheist, and the other small amount people practice otherreligions. For Catholics, the only restrictions are that meat isnot allowed to be eaten on Ash Wednesday and on Fridays duringLent. Some Strict Catholics still feel all Fridays during the yearshould be meatless, unless this meat is Fish. Other than Fridaysand Ash Wednesday, there aren't many food restrictions except thatall things must be taken in with moderation. Over eating to somecan be as sinful as drinking too much. In Spain, especially inAndalusia, the presence of Muslim culture can be seen everywhere.Mixed with the culture of catholic Spain, Muslim shows ineverything from the architecture to the cuisine. This is because inthe spring of 711, the Umayyad kingdom attacked part of Spain andafter about 8 years they finally conquered. For centuries theMuslim culture took over and still shows today especially in food.During those centuries, People created Spain's first irrigationsystem to farm and grow crops. The Muslims brought over andintroduced Spain to new produce. The irrigation system was used tohelp grow spices and foods such as saffron, apricots, artichokes,carob, sugar, grapefruits, carrots, and rice. Many of theseingredients are used in a tradition Spanish dish called paella madewith mostly saffron and rice. Spain actually produces 70% of thecrops worldwide. The Muslim influence on Spanish food is probablymore visible in their desserts, and the majority of the moretraditional desserts are clear examples of this. Muslims introducedthe almonds which revolutionized pastry making. They are now anessential part of Spanish desserts and have left their mark on manydishes; one of these is the famous torta de almendras. Muslimsaren't allowed to eat pork at all. Pork is considered non kosher tothem and therefore it is a sin to consume it. So centuries ago, pigwas not popular. Now that a big portion of Spain is Catholic, porkis eaten a lot, partially because of Catholics love for eating pigand not wanting to waste any of it. Ham in Spain is now verypopular actually. Over the Centuries, religion made many changes tocuisine and culture in Spain. Catholic and Muslim religiondefinitely influenced Spain's culture and cuisine in more ways thanany other religions.
There is very little affect on food since the dominant religion in Mexico is Catholicism. There are no food restrictions in this religion.
They do not eat meat on Christmas Eve in honour and respect for god and focus their heart and soul on the birth of Jesus Christ!
Some religions have dietary restrictions. Here are a few examples although it is just a sample-- Judaism has kosher laws that forbid the eating of pork, non-fish seafoods, …the mixing of meat and dairy products in the same meal; mammals with certain types of hoofs. Islam has laws permitting foods classified as halal--pork and alcohol are fobidden. Most Hindus are vegetarian and most do not eat cattle; cows are considered sacred. Certain branches of Indian religions also do not eat eggs, fungi, or onionlike vegetables .

Religion belief does in fact affect food choice. Some people belief they shouldn't eat meat or dairy products because for many years they follow the same beliefs as their ance…stors.
Indonesians are mostly muslims muslims don't eat pork
By referring to the Books of Your religion
This largely depends on which religion is being practiced. Some religions have food restrictions, while others don't. There are literally hundreds of religions with food consi…derations, so it would be too much to include here. However, common restrictions include certain meats (or all meats), certain vegetables (or classes of vegetables), and there are even a few religions that require certain foods.
