The Function of Food Ingredients

Food ingredients are substances that are added to food to achieve a desired effect. Food ingredients usually include food additives, i.e. substances added to food during processing, storage or packaging for specific technical and/or functional purposes. I know each kind of food ingredient has its specific funtions. However, can someone summarize what are the main functions of food ingredients as a whole?
