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 Fibre in the World
The body needs multiple types of fibre, and no single food contains all of the fibre you need. For soluble fibre, the type that benefits heart health, some of the best sources are oatmeal, beans, and dried plums. Wheat bran has extremely high levels of insoluble fibre, the type that relieves constipation and benefits the digestive tract. If you prefer your fibre in supplement form, psyllium, which contains both soluble and insoluble fibre, is probably your best bet. Aim for a total of 20 to 35 grams of fibre each day from many different sources.
1. 20 to 35 grams of wheat bran ensure the necessary daily amount of fibre.
What Is the Most Abundant Carbohydrate in the World?
When it comes to carbohydrates that are food crops, more acres of wheat are harvested than any other carbohydrate source. About 211 million acres of farmland are dedicated to wheat production. In addition to being found in breads, cakes, cookies, pasta and cereals, wheat is also used in plenty of processed foods.
2. All processed foods are likely to contain wheat.
 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. Capsaicin is an ingredient that irritates your mouth tissues.
