List Of Countable And Uncountable Food

In English, nouns can be countable or uncountable. This can be a difficult concept for ESL students to grasp and it is important for English language learners to learn the difference. 

To correctly use the plural form or to correctly use determiners like ‘some‘ and ‘any‘, students must know whether the noun is countable or uncountable. 

It is also important to know if a noun is countable or uncountable when using the quantifiers ‘much‘, ‘many‘, ‘few‘, and ‘a little‘. 

Many English textbooks first introduce the concept of count and non-count nouns with food. 

So, we put together this list of countable and uncountable food to help English language students to memorize these nouns.
