On earth there is a huge variety of food. In order to produce them, it is necessary to expend natural resources, including water, electricity and various feeds. Experts have identified the most expensive food. Specialists through various studies have listed the most expensive food products, the manufacture of which consumes unreasonable amounts of various resources, primarily water. 

In the top 3 of these products are beefshrimp and nuts. Scientists have calculated that it takes 15,000 liters of water to make one kilogram of beef. This is three times more than for chicken and 18 times more than for growing one kilogram of wheat. Shrimps are also on this list. this is connected with the technology of shrimp meat production, as well as with the consumption of feed for their cultivation. It is proved that to receive only 1 kilogram of finished shrimp meat, you need 25 times more feed than for the production of other seafood.

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

4th place is popular, everyone's favorite french fries . The fact is that this food product is usable for about 5-10 minutes after preparation. If you don’t use potatoes during this time, then you just need to throw them away. According to experts, in the UK, this product accounts for almost 10% of all food waste. In fifth place is coffee. For one cup of coffee you need 550 glasses of water. 


As for vegetables and fruits, bananas cost the most . According to its high cost, they are in sixth place. These fruits require a large amount of nitrogen, phosphate and potash fertilizers. In seventh place is chocolate . For the manufacture of 100 grams of chocolate requires about 2000 liters of water. 

As international scientists have noted over the past 30 years, the world's population may increase by two and a half billion people and reach 10 billion. And this, in turn, requires a radical revision of the food culture. It is necessary to reduce or abandon the use of some of the above products.скачать dle 12.1
