It is not always evident how race matters to the study of food. The paper proposes how theories of race are being used in the literature. Most literature implicitly relies on the social construction of race to consider representations and performances of race in contexts of eating or producing food. Explicit engagement with the concept of race and its theoretical foundations is important because it allows scholars to make arguments about how racism shapes food systems, to understand how race changes through food, and to consider how food might enable different theorizations of race
