    Of all preserved food

    Dear all,

    "Of all preserved food, frozen foods most resemble fresh foods......"

    This is the firt sentence of a passage I recently read. I wonder why only the first "food" is not in a plural form.

    Is there any reason? Or is this just a typo or something?

    Thank you!

    Re: Of all preserved food

    In my opinion you could use "food" or "foods" for any of them, but the second two should be the same. And if you use "food" for the second, "resemble" should be "resembles".
