General definition (in Jainism)
Khādima (खादिम) refers to “food that is chewed or nibbled” and represents one of the four classifications of food (āhāra) according to the 11th century Śrāvakācāra (verse 6.96-97) by Amitagati. Khādima refers to all that is chewed or nibbled: fruits and nuts such as mangoes, dates, almonds and coconuts, dairy products, sugar and molasses, and various cakes and sweetmeats. Abhakṣyas coming into this category include honey and the udumbara fruits.
Jainism is an Indian religion of Dharma whose doctrine revolves around harmlessness (ahimsa) towards every living being. The two major branches (Digambara and Svetambara) of Jainism stimulate self-control (or, shramana, ‘self-reliance’) and spiritual development through a path of peace for the soul to progess to the ultimate goal.
