Maize is a dietary staple in parts of Africa. Food use is highest in Lesotho (427 g day-1 per person) and is 300-400 g day-1 per person in other southern and eastern African countries (Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and South Africa) and in Mexico, where it has a pre-Colombian tradition. Food use is 200-300 g day-1 per person in Moldova, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Guatemala, Kenya, El Salvador, and Honduras and 100-200 g day-1 per person in Benin, Bolivia, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Columbia, Egypt, Ethiopia, Georgia, Ghana, North Korea, Mozambique, Nepal, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Romania, Swaziland, Tanzania, Togo, and Venezuela.
