There are no shortages of beans, fresh fruit, vegetables along with grains albeit that you probably wont recognise a lot of them. The vegetable markets tend to be fresher than the supermarkets. You can even buy protein powder here but if you buy dried beans, seeds, grains or pulses in a supermarket such as Auchan they can grind it into powder for you while you wait. Check before you buy. Whole grains such as wheat, rye, barley and oats are not readily available in supermarkets but you might find them on Taobao. Bleached and wholemeal flour is available in some supermarkets that have foreign food sections.

Voltage here is 220 volts.

More money is always advisable in a foreign country.
