google sheets – How to create a single list from a selected range of cells

I have a list of foods in cells A1: A16 and I want to create a unique list with each item listed only once in the list:

Eggs
Bacon
hashbrowns
Baked beans
Lawyer
coffee
Bread
Bread
Sandwhich meet
Salad
Tomato
mustard
mayo
Chips
Cheese
biscuits

I've tried the formula = unique (transpose (split (ArrayFormula (concatenation (A1: A16 & ""),)), "")))

but it creates a unique list and divides words like "beans beans" into new elements like this:

Eggs
Bacon
hashbrowns
Cooked
Beans
Lawyer
coffee
Bread
sandwhich
meet
Salad
Tomato
mustard
mayo
Chips
Cheese
biscuits

As you can see, "cooked" and "beans" appear as two distinct elements. How can I make it an element of the new single list?
