Grain-Based Foods: United States

This report forecasts to 2021 and 2025 US grain-based food demand and shipments in nominal US dollars at the manufacturer level. Demand and shipments are segmented by product in terms of: bakery products; dough, dry pasta, and tortillas; frozen foods; salty snacks; breakfast cereals; cookies; crackers; and other products, such as granola bars and perishable prepared foods.

To illustrate historical trends, total demand, total production, the various segments, and trade are provided in annual series from 2010 to 2020.

Grain-based foods are based on flour derived from the processed seeds of grain crops (including corn), yielding starch-enriched flours for use in baking and other modes of food preparation. Flours derived from alternative sources such as fruits, vegetables, or nuts (e.g., almonds) are also included. The value of non-grain ingredients in grain-based food items (e.g., pizza toppings and sauce on frozen pizzas) is included. Animal food is excluded from the scope of this report, as are non-grain snack foods such as potato chips. Re-exports of grain-based foods are excluded from demand and trade figures.

Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided with quantified trends. Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading companies, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
