Abstract[EN] One of the major challenges the European colonizers faced in sixteenth-century Portuguese America was adaptation to their new environment, especially nutritional obstacles. Obtaining the human body’s daily calorie requirements may have been one of the more strenuous tasks in colonial dynamics. Their diets were composed of what was available; in this context, native fruits took on an important role, especially when consumed in the form of compotes and preserves. Our goal is to highlight the importance of colonial sweets, identify how they were consumed, and show the relationship between this activity and the medical discourse which was present in sixteenth-century Europe.
[PT] Um dos maiores desafios enfrentados pelos colonizadores europeus, na América portuguesa quinhentista, foi a adaptação ao novo ambiente, sobretudo, aos obstáculos nutricionais. Prover-se das calorias exigidas diariamente pelo corpo humano pode ter sido uma das tarefas mais extenuantes da dinâmica colonial. A alimentação era feita de acordo com a disponibilidade dos gêneros alimentícios ali existentes. Nesse contexto, os frutos nativos assumiram um papel importante na dieta alimentar daqueles homens, principalmente quando consumidos em forma de compotas e conservas. Temos, como objetivo, destacar a importância dos doces coloniais, bem como identificar de que maneira o seu consumo ocorria, sinalizando a relação dessa atividade com o discurso médico difundido na Europa do século XVI.
