Abstract

Reformation polemicists denounced Catholic food rules that condemned gluttony and drunkenness and disciplined the ecclesiastical fasting. These accusations led Catholic missionaries in Europe or in the New World to pay particular attention to the need for sobriety and moderation at the table and to export their own convictions to the Americas. The food of the other, such as the yerba mate, a drink widespread among the Guarani of Paraguay, aroused their mistrust. However, the attempt to change traditional eating habits was often unsuccessful, as evidenced by the crucial role played by mate in the history of taste, culture and economy in Jesuit missions in Paraguay.
