In brief: Probably none

Addiction refers to chemicals which fit into certain brain receptors causing symptoms when not taken.
Food can be habit forming, tasty and sought over and over. But there is no withdrawal pattern and craving is not considered a withdrawal pattern. So you can eat any foods without fear of addiction.
