America’s top fruit juice choices are oranges and apples

US. A recent study released by the United States Department of Agriculture’s Economic Research Service (USDA ERS) loss-adjusted food availability data reported that on average Americans consumed an average of 115.4 pounds of fresh and processed fruit per person in 2015.

Orange juice consumption was the nation’s favourite, unsurprisingly, at 2.7 gallons per person in 2015. Apple juice came second at 1.6 gallons per person with grape juice and pineapple juice third and fourth respectively.

The report which has been updated for 2017 appears in ERS’s Ag and Food Statistics: Charting the Essentials data product.
