1/ June-May. Current year is preliminary. Previous year is preliminary through August of current year, estimated afterwards.
2/ Food imports and exports used to calculate total food use. Includes all categories of wheat flour, semolina, bulgur, and couscous and selected categories of pasta.
3/ Wheat prepared for food use by processes other than milling.
4/ Estimated food use equals wheat ground for flour plus food imports plus nonmilled food use minus food exports. See http://www.ers.usda.gov/Briefing/Wheat/wheatfooduse.htm for more information.
Source: Data through the 2nd quarter of 2011 was calculated using data from U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of the Census’ Flour Milling Products (MQ311A) and U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Economic Analysis’ Foreign Trade Statistics. Data through June 2014 was calculated using data from the North American Millers Association. Subsequent flour milling calculations are based on data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, National Agricultural Statistics Service's Flour Milling Products.
