On the ground there is a huge variety of food products. To produce them, it is necessary to spend natural resources, including water electricity and various feeds. Experts identified the most expensive food. Experts through various studies listed the most expensive food products, for the manufacture of which an unjustified amount of various resources, primarily water, is spent. 

In the top 3 of these products included beef , shrimp and nuts. Scientists have estimated that 15,000 liters of water are needed to make one kilogram of beef. This is three times more than for chicken meat and 18 times more than for growing one kilogram of wheat. The list also includes shrimp. this is due to the technology of production of shrimp meat, as well as the consumption of feed for their cultivation. It has been proved that only 25 kg of fodder is needed to produce just 1 kg of ready shrimp meat, rather than to produce other seafood.

As for very healthy nuts, they also consume a lot of water to grow them. The leader is the Californian almond. For example, in California to grow almonds, a person spends about 10% of the state's water resources. Also expensive are walnuts, hazelnuts, pistachios and cashews. Of all kinds of nuts, the most economical is chestnut. 

4th place is the popular, all-favorite french fries . The fact is that this food is usable somewhere for 5-10 minutes after cooking. If during this time the potatoes are not used, then it must be simply discarded. According to experts, in the UK, this product accounts for almost 10% of all food waste. The fifth place is coffee. For one cup of ready coffee, 550 glasses of water are needed. 


As for fruits and vegetables, bananas are the most expensive . At their high cost, they stand in sixth place. These fruits require a large amount of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium fertilizers. The seventh place is chocolate . To produce 100 grams of chocolate, about 2,000 liters of water is required. 

As noted by international scholars for 30 years, the world's population can increase by two and a half billion people and reach 10 billion. And this, in turn, requires a cardinal revision of the food culture. It is necessary to reduce or refrain from using some of the above products.
