Daily bread consumption per person in Italy from 1861 to 2014 (in grams)

by Statista Research Department, last edited Oct 1, 2015
Italy: daily bread consumption per person 1861-2014 Italians eat less and less bread. The daily consumption per person was assumed to be about one kilogram as of 1861, the year of the country’s unification. More than a century later, an Italian consumer tended to eat 230 grams of bread per day. In 2014, the average daily consumption was by 90 grams. This reflects a huge change on people’s diet due to different economic conditions.
What kind of bread?

  In the past, Italians could choose among a limited offer of bread types. Now, on supermarkets shelves, consumers find endless types of bakery products. Among those, long life bread was the most sold in Italy, with 18 thousand tons sold as of 2018. Toasted bread reported the highest sales value with 298 million euros.

Eating less carbohydrates

  Lesser bread consumption is associated to diet trends, too. When on a diet, Italians would most likely reduce carbohydrates, as the low carb is the second most popular diet plan, according to this survey.
