Comprehensive data on food supply and consumption is published by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). Data was analyzed by The Global Graph and is published in these below Highlights, Graphs and Tables (Data Quality & Definations)
  • As per United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), average person in Armenia gets their caloric supply from :
    • Carbohydrates : 54.87%54.87%
    • Fat : 28.10%28.10%
    • Plant protein : 6.05%6.05%
    • Animal protein : 5.59%5.59%
  • 5.40% decrease in caloric supply : Currently Armenia gets 2928/kilocalories per person per day worth of caloric supply when compared to 3095/kilocalories per person per day in Year 1961
  • Cereals & Grains, Dairy & Eggs and Oils & Fats are three major diet compositions in Armenia
  • Wheat, Rice and Oats are three major Cereal preferences in Armenia

Breakdown of the average per capita intake of cereals by specific cereal-based commodity types, measured in kilocalories per person per day. This figure measures the primary equivalent of all food products derived from a given commodity (e.g. "wheat" represents the primary equivalent of its derived products). Data refers to cereal food supply at the consumer level but does not account for consumer wastage in
