Due to many reasons people all over the world have different composition of their daily diet. Here we suggest you to look at how the composition of daily diet varies across different countries with the change of per capita income. People in high income countries consume more vegetable oils, sugar and sweeteners, milk and meat. With the decrease of income among countries, consumption of cereals accounts for bigger share of daily diet. People living at extreme poverty level consume much more starchy roots.
Name of each country on the chart below is followed by value of gross national income (GNI) per capita in current US$ for 2013 (source: The World Bank, World Development Indicators, February 2017). Data on composition of daily diet was calculated on a basis of Food Balance Sheets, released by FAO in February 2017.

Producers in every region of the world have progressively increased the yields for maize and soy since 1963, with the highest yield per hectre in 2013 for both commodities being in the Americas and lowest in Africa.In 2013, the United States and Brazil were the world's largest producers of soy, with a commanding 62 percent total combined share...
Food is a basic human need. And we tried to estimate how much do people pay for food in different countries. It appeared that food availability significantly varies across countries. In general, price of 1000 Kcal goes up inline with per capita income. For example, in Greece, Belarus, Croatia, Japan and Macedonia people pay $2.8 (based on PPP) for 1000 Kcal. At the same time in Nigeria, Uzbekistan, China India and Kenya the price of 1000 kcal is less then $0.7. It is interesting, that the U.S. citizens pay for food noticably less compared to other developed and many developing countries.
