How is it determined if a particular type of plants or species suitable for human consumption?

The difference between winner and loser is making things happen and letting things happen.

Someone is curious enough to eat it. That person (or others, depending on the outcome) then observes the effects and draws conclusions.

You go to the supermarket and look around, and there you discover a lot of human food.

If you want to find out if something is edible, find a dumb person and tell him: "Hey Joe! That red mushroom with those white dots looks delicious! Try taking a bite out of it!". If Joe than falls over and dies, you know you have to avoid it.

You feel hungry. You try to find something that will keep you full. When you do find something that appeals to you, you eat. If you live, you tell the tale.

That is why the institution of marriage was invented. Marriage gives you mother in laws. You need someone to test the food.
