Background: A clearly structured hierarchical vocabulary related to logical and qualitative relationships in the field of food consumption, in other words, with their ontology, is extremely necessary to solve the problems of data harmonization which cover areas of food safety, certified quality, production technology, distribution, as well as health and comfort of the end-users of food.

Objective: We analyzed the current state of the process of the development of standardized and computerized foodclassification systems that are connected to existing modern databases and provide real-timeinformation on the composition and nutritional features of foods.

Methods: We used the methods of theoretical synthesis and deductive analysis, literary review of foreign scientific reviewed sources.

Results: The lack of a single and understandable digital language was found to be an obvious gap in the field of computerization and unification of information on food products, as food objects are constantly moving from their natural or farm origin, through the technological processing and distribution chains to the consumers on different continents that are characterized by various nutritional and physiological needs that may differ in the countries throughout the world.
