Milk Product Consumption Per Capita
Every year the Canadian Dairy Information Centre from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada releases per capita consumption data on various food items according to food availability and disappearance data. New data is released each year and reflects the estimated consumption of the previous year.
|The per capita consumption of milk products for 2015 is as follows:|
|Total Fluid Milk||70.64 L (194 mL per day)|
|Total Cheeses||14.08 Kg (39 g per day)|
|Yogurt||10.53 L (29 mL per day)|
This apparent consumption equals to about 1.7 servings/day. The numbers are based on sales and are an overestimation since they do not include losses.
Of the Total Fluid Milk consumption, 2% milk represents the largest intake:
- 2% Milk = 34.44 L
- 1% Milk = 13.99 L
- Whole (3.25%) milk = 10.08 L
- Skim milk = 5.58 L
- Chocolate and other flavoured milk = 6.23 L
- Butter milk = 0.33 L
