Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. Also, loss estimates at the
consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories
and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-
equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-
equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita
calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability.

 Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied
by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. Also, loss estimates at the consumer
level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories and Food
Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and
grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams
per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. Also, loss estimates at the
consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita
calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability.
3
 Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied
by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. Also, loss estimates at the
consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories
and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-
equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-
equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. Also, loss estimates at the
consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories
and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-
equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-
equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories and Food
Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and
grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams
per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. Also, loss estimates at the
consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories
and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-
equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-
equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. Also, loss estimates at the
consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories
and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-
equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-
equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. Also, loss estimates at the
consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories
and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-
equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-
equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. 1This table uses aggregate food
availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for
each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release,
http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. Also, loss estimates at the
consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories
and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-
equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-
equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. Also, loss estimates at the
consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories
and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-
equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-
equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. Also, loss estimates at the
consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories
and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-
equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-
equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. Also, loss estimates at the
consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories
and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-
equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-
equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. Also, loss estimates at the
consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories
and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-
equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-
equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. Also, loss estimates at the
consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories
and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-
equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-
equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. Also, loss estimates at the
consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories
and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-
equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-
equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. Also, loss estimates at the
consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories
and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-
equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-
equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. Also, loss estimates at the
consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories
and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-
equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-
equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. Also, loss estimates at the
consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories
and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-
equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-
equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. 1This table uses aggregate food
availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for
each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release,
http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. Also, loss estimates at the
consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories
and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-
equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-
equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories
and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-
equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-
equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. Also, loss estimates at the
consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories
and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-
equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-
equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. Also, loss estimates at the
consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories
and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-
equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-
equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. Also, loss estimates at the
consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories
and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-
equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-
equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. Also, loss estimates at the
consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories
and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-
equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-
equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. Also, loss estimates at the
consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories
and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-
equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-
equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. Also, loss estimates at the
consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories
and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-
equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-
equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. Also, loss estimates at the
consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories
and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-
equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-
equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. Also, loss estimates at the
consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories
and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Calories per cup-
equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-
equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Also, loss estimates at the consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses,
and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for
each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. 3Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 4Grams per day divided by grams per-
cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates at the consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into
daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability.
Fresh-weight equivalent. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern
Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates at the consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into
daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability.
Fresh-weight equivalent. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern
Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates at the consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into
daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability.
Fresh-weight equivalent. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern
Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates at the consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into
daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability.
Fresh-weight equivalent. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern
Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates at the consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into
daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability.
Fresh-weight equivalent. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern
Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates at the consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into
daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability.
Fresh-weight equivalent. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern
Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates at the consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into
daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability.
Fresh-weight equivalent. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern
Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates at the consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into
daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability.
Fresh-weight equivalent. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern
Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates at the consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into
daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability.
Fresh-weight equivalent. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern
Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates at the consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into
daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability.
Fresh-weight equivalent. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern
Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates at the consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses,
and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for
each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. Fresh-weight equivalent. 3Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 4Grams per
day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates at the consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply
into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data
availability. Fresh-weight equivalent. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list.
4
 Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates at the consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining
supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system
and data availability. Fresh-weight equivalent. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release,
http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates at the consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining
supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system
and data availability. Fresh-weight equivalent. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release,
http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates at the consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining
supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system
and data availability. Fresh-weight equivalent. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release,
http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates at the consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining
supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system
and data availability. Fresh-weight equivalent. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release,
http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates at the consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining
supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system
and data availability. Fresh-weight equivalent. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release,
http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates at the consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining
supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system
and data availability. Fresh-weight equivalent. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release,
http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates at the consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining
supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system
and data availability. Fresh-weight equivalent. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release,
http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates at the consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining
supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system
and data availability. Fresh-weight equivalent. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release,
http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates at the consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining
supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system
and data availability. Fresh-weight equivalent. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release,
http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates at the consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining
supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system
and data availability. Fresh-weight equivalent. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release,
http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates at the consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses,
and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for
each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. Fresh-weight equivalent. 3Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 4Grams per
day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates at the consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining
supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system
and data availability. Fresh-weight equivalent. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release,
http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates at the consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining
supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system
and data availability. Fresh-weight equivalent. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release,
http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates at the consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining
supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system
and data availability. Fresh-weight equivalent. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release,
http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates at the consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses,
and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for
each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. Fresh-weight equivalent. 3Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 4Grams per
day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

 This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary
distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. Product weight. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from
USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup
equivalent.

 This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary
distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. Product weight. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from
USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup
equivalent.

and discussion. We welcome suggestions to expand on and improve our loss estimates. Contact Jean Buzby at jbuzby@ers.usda.gov or Jeanine Bentley at jbentley@ers.usda.gov

 This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary
distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. Product weight. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from
USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup
equivalent.

 This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary
distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. Product weight. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from
USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup
equivalent.

 This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary
distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. Product weight. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from
USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup
equivalent.

 This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary
distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. Product weight. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from
USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup
equivalent.

 This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary
distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. Product weight. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from
USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup
equivalent.

 This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is made at a primary
distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. Product weight. 3Calories per cup-equivalent and grams per cup-equivalent were obtained from
USDA's Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release, http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list. 4Food Pattern Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 5Grams per day divided by grams per-cup
equivalent.

 This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability
estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. Product weight. 3Food Pattern
Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 4Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

 This table uses aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability
estimate is made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. Product weight. 3Food Pattern
Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 4Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.

Note: Loss estimates from retail/institutional to consumer level for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and seafood have been updated. See
http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/eib44/. Also, loss estimates at the consumer level have been updated. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Publications/TB1927/. 1This table uses
aggregate food availability data, adjusts for losses, and converts the remaining supply into daily per capita calories and Food Pattern Equivalents. 2The basic availability estimate is
made at a primary distribution level, which is dictated for each commodity by the structure of the marketing system and data availability. Fresh-weight equivalent. 3Food Pattern
Equivalents multiplied by calories per cup-equivalent. 4Grams per day divided by grams per-cup equivalent.
