PERCEPTION OF LOATHSOMENESS IN FOOD (ĀHĀRE PATIKŪLA SAÑÑĀ)

In the Āhāra sutta of the Samyutta Nikāya (collection of the Buddha’s connected discourses), the Buddha has described four types of nutriments for the maintenance of beings who have come into being or for the support of those in search of a place to be born. They are:

1. Physical nutriment (kabalinkāhāra)

2. Sense impression nutriment (phassāhāra)

3. Volitional thoughts nutriment (mano sancetanāhāra)

4. Consciousness nutriment (viññānāhāra) (2)

Atthirāgasutta

Āhārasutta

Puttamaṁsasutta

I want to know if the translations of the central sutta and transworld teachings on food are well explained.
