Causes of death across Chile are changing due to Population Increase, Life Expectancy rise and Living Standard.On this below article we provide graphical represntation of major causes of death in Chile.

Highlights of Chile BMI and Diet Compositions

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 Chile gets their caloric supply from :
    • Carbohydrates : 73.10%73.10%
    • Fat : 32.21%32.21%
    • Animal protein : 7.25%7.25%
    • Plant protein : 6.74%6.74%
  • 19.30% increase in caloric supply : Currently Chile gets 2979/kilocalories per person per day worth of caloric supply when compared to 2497/kilocalories per person per day in Year 1961
  • Cereals & Grains, Meat and Sugar are three major diet compositions in Chile
  • Wheat, Maize and Rice are three major Cereal preferences in Chile
  • National and World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations on vegitable intake is to range between 200-250g per day and in Chile average intake is 196.49 grams
  • Apples, Bananas and Lemons & Limes are three major Fruit Types Intake in Chile
  • National and World Health Organization (WHO) typically set a guideline of 200g Fruit Intake per day and in Chile average Fruit intake is 175.12grams

  • 64.40% of population is suffering from obesity and this trend is continously increasing from last few years
  • Average Male BMI in Chile is in range of obese and Average Female BMI is in range of obese (BMI = Body Mass Index - The WHO define a BMI <=18.5 as 'underweight'; 18.5 to 25 as 'normal/healthy'; 25.0 to 30.0 as 'obese')


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
