Units measured in pounds
* Per capita deliveries of sweeteners by U.S. processors and refiners and other end users represent the per capita supply of caloric sweeteners. Actual human intake of caloric sweeteners is lower because of uneaten food, spoilage, and other losses. Figures do not include deliveries to alcohol manufacturers.
