WORLD NUTRITION FACTS
 
While some foods are universal, others are more popular in specific areas of the world. Whether you are in search of a healthy new snack or want to figure out where the foods you eat fit in with world trends, understanding a few key world nutrition facts can help you make better food choices no matter where you are from.

The Best Muscle-Building Protein in the World
When it comes to building muscle, you need a complete protein source, which contains all of the necessary amino acids in order to ensure proper muscle growth. Eggs are an excellent, and easily available, complete protein. Eggs contain everything you need for muscle building, and they are also 100 percent bioavailable, which means that your body doesn’t waste any of the protein because it is all in a usable form. In addition, eggs contain other vitamins and minerals that help build muscle, including vitamins A and B-12.
 
1. Your body is able to use egg protein better than protein from any other sources.
 
 
What Is the Worst Junk Food in the World?
While deep-fried Twinkies and super-sized sundaes don’t do anything positive for your waistline or your health, the true king of junk food is the “Triple-Bypass Burger” at Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas. This 8,000-calorie burger packs almost a week’s worth of calories into one sandwich. Even worse, the establishment lived up to its name in February 2012, when a customer eating one of these burgers had an actual heart attack right in the restaurant. Other contenders for the worst junk food include deep-fried butter and chocolate-covered bacon.
 
2. Other dishes compete with “Triple-Bypass Burger” to possess the title of the worst junk food in the world.
 
 
 What Are the Most Abundant Carbs in the World?
While the most abundant carbohydrate in nature is actually cellulose, this form of carb isn’t digestible. When it comes to carbs your body can actually use, starches take top billing. These complex carbohydrates don’t taste sweet like simple sugars do, but they still get broken down into glucose in the body. Potatoes, rice, grains, pasta and legumes all contain starches.
 
3. Your body turns simple sugars and starches into glucose.
 
 
 What Is the Mildest Pepper in the World?
Sweet bell peppers are the mildest pepper in the world because they contain no capsaicin, the compound that burns your tongue and gives most peppers their spiciness. On the Scoville scale, which measures how hot a pepper is, sweet bell peppers come in at a completely neutral zero on a scale of zero to 16 million. If you want a pepper with just a little bit of spice, try a pimento, which has a Scoville level of 100 to 500.
 
4. According to the Scoville scale, sweet bell peppers are measured from 0 to 16 million.
