An "original research article" is a form of Primary Literature, that is, the first publication of scientific research. You can read about the characteristics of Primary Literature here, but that involves understanding of the concept. If you understood the concept, you could use articles from any source and judge for yourself if they were original.
A simpler way to do this would be to search the database Science Direct, which is available from the Food Science Databases page. This product happens to have a large number of food science related articles and happens to have obvious labels on their original research articles.
After you start up Science Direct, click on "Advanced Search" on the right side of the screen.
Click on the "Journals" tab.
Type in your search (your search can be simple or complex: this one is a complicated example)Check "Subscribed Journals"
|Look carefully at the results list: Original Research Articles will have that notation on them.|
Note: If you are required to get more than a few of these types of articles, you may have to understand the concept (scroll back to the top of this answer) and look at a lot more databases.
