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.

These include white, yellow, and red types and types with endosperms ranging from soft and floury to hard and flinty textures.
