  • Description:
    Key findings Data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey • In 2015–2018, water accounted for more than one-half of total nonalcoholic beverage consumption (51.2%) among U.S. adults. • Compared with women, men consumed more coffee, sweetened beverages, and fruit beverages as a percentage of total beverage consumption, and less water and tea. • The contribution of water and sweetened beverages to total beverage consumption decreased with age, while the contribution of coffee, tea, milk, and diet beverages increased with age. • The contribution of water (60.7%) and tea (13.6%) to total beverage consumption was highest among non-Hispanic Asian adults, while the contribution of coffee (17.3%) was highest among non-Hispanic white adults. Beverages play a substantial role in meeting total water intake needs and are a major contributor to overall nutrient and caloric intake for the U.S. population (1,2). The 2015–2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend that water, fat-free and low-fat milk, and 100% juice be the primary beverages consumed (2). This report provides estimates of the contribution of beverage types to total nonalcoholic beverage consumption, by grams, for U.S. adults.
