Food Supply 2010 thumbnailNutrient Content of the U.S. Food Supply, 1909-2010

Excel tables (xls) present historical data on the Nutrient Content of the U.S. Food Supply on the amounts of nutrients per capita per day in food available for consumption and percentage contributions of nutrients by major food groups.

The data presented in these tables are invaluable for monitoring the potential of the food supply to meet nutritional needs; for examining relationships between food supply nutrients and health; and for examining dietary trends of Americans. Additionally, food supply nutrient estimates reflect Federal enrichment and fortification standards and technological advances in the food industry and contribute to the Federal dietary guidance system. As such, these data are of interest to agricultural policymakers, economists, nutrition researchers, and nutrition and public health educators. Data are provided for the following nutrients and their food sources from the major food groups.
