We are what we eat – German and American food ads

A review of the kinds of food ads found in German and American culinary magazines (Essen & Trinken, Der Feinschmecker, Bon Appétit, and Food & Wine) finds differences which directly reflect the two cultures.  Specifically, German magazines carry statistically more fruit/vegetable and water/juice/coffee/tea ads than the American publications.  On the other hand, the U.S. magazines contain more pasta/bread/rice/flour and breakfast food ads than their German counterparts.  As a mirror of culture, advertisements here show the health risks in the United States.
