USDA Reports Continued Stability In Per Capita Wheat Flour Consumption

April 30, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
After a long period of decline in per capita wheat flour consumption – and stagnating growth in total usage – in the early years of this century, per capita consumption in the U.S. has taken a turn for the better, according to the USDA. Per capita disappearance of wheat flour – total wheat flour divided by the average monthly population – in 2013 was about 135 lbs., up a little from 134.4 in 2012, and about the same as in 2009 and 2010. In light of these numbers, World-Grain.com says, “it is tempting to declare” the past five years “as one of the longest times of steadiness in per capita consumption [of wheat flour] in modern history”.
