As a man who has lived in Japan and enjoyed real Japanese food, I can proudly say that it is one of the best foods in the world with a rich history. It's less oily, you can eat a lot of vegetables, and its calories are really low, so it's good for your diet too. Also, go and search "beautiful Japanese food" on Google. I'm pretty sure you'll be amazed at how colorful and attractive they are. Promise!

If you think you can only eat raw sushi and vegetables at a Japanese restaurant, you've been to the wrong one for sure. The real ones are made with so much care and take a long time to cook. Seriously, be careful of the ones that are run by non-Japanese people with no previous working experience at a restaurant in Japan. It's totally different from the original. Even if the restaurant people look like they're Asian, they may not be from Japan but from Korea or China. I know it's hard to tell.

2 China China, officially the People's Republic of China, is a country in East Asia. It is the world's most populous country, with a population of more than 1.4 billion. China spans five geographical time zones and borders 14 countries, the second most of any country in the world after Russia. Covering an area... read more

Real Chinese food is healthier and tastier than most Chinese food in America.

3 France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to... read more

Butter, you said? Yes, but not more than elsewhere, and surely it's better to use butter than palm oil, which is used in many countries and is worse than butter but without any vitamins.

You should know that France has the highest level of veterinary and fraud controls in restaurants and food producers. For that reason, each time there is a fraud, it's largely broadcast by the media as part of the transparency required by public authorities. If a case is publicly known, it's because of those controls. Without any controls or because of corruption, those cases would not be known. In 2015, there were exactly 0 deaths related to food. So be tranquil, no worries at all, and if you find one, please do not hesitate to contact our services.

4 Singapore Singapore, officially known as the Republic of Singapore, is a sovereign island city-state in maritime Southeast Asia. It is situated approximately one degree of latitude (137 kilometers or 85 miles) north of the equator, off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula. It borders the Strait of Malacca... read more

I've never had cuisine from Singapore, but I've heard it is quite healthy.

Singapore's food is not as healthy as some of the above countries like Japan or Korea, but it is definitely healthier than the USA.

5 Sweden Sweden, officially the Kingdom of Sweden, is a Scandinavian country in Northern Europe.

It borders Norway to the west and Finland to the east, and is connected to Denmark in the southwest by a bridge-tunnel across the Öresund. At 450,295 square kilometers (173,860 sq mi), Sweden is the third-largest... read more

Swedish food often includes meatballs, fish, raw fish, and vegetables. Our foods are often not processed and are very healthy.

The only Swedish cuisine I've heard of is Swedish meatballs, which are healthy and tasty to eat.

Swedish food should be in the top 10. It is much healthier than American food, which is processed. The United States should even be in the bottom. What is America thinking?

6 South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea (ROK), is a country in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula and sharing a land border with North Korea. Its western border is formed by the Yellow Sea, while its eastern border is defined by the Sea of Japan. South Korea claims... read more

Korean kimchi and other fermented foods are very healthy. They have lots of vitamins, minerals, and protein. They may be seen as a bit unusual to other countries and Western people, but it is scientifically proven that Korean food is tasty and good for your health. They can be salty, yes, but other nutrients make up for that flaw, so it is okay. We also use lots of vegetables, unlike Japan, which uses lots of fish, and China, which uses lots of meats like pork and gammon.

Korean food history is more than three thousand years old and has developed in better ways. If you start eating Korean food, at first you might feel gross, but if you keep eating, it will become quite addictive.

7 India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world. Its capital is New Delhi.

Indian food is well-balanced. The varieties and ingredients have been meticulously chosen over thousands of years for their flavor, nourishment, energy, health influence, taste, and nutrient requirements.

India is not only a gourmet's delight but also a good nutritionist's prescription. It is a science by itself when it comes to meal preparation, ingredients, and accompaniments.

Indian food is well-cooked with many spices, which are rich in antibiotics. The usage of spices is only known by Indians. They have a huge variety of spices, which are added to daily food, making the food digestive and delicious. But nowadays, in India, mostly teens are addicted to fast foods (like Chinese noodles, Manchurian), which are greasy foods.

8 Italy Italy (Italian: Repubblica Italiana) is a sovereign state and unitary parliamentary republic in south-central Europe.

Italy covers an area of 301,338 km². With almost 62 million inhabitants, it is the third most populous EU member state. Located in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, Italy shares... read more

Italian food is easy to make. Italian food uses farm-grown ingredients that are grown without any use of antibiotics or preservatives. Not only that, but the food tastes truly spectacular.

Italian food is the best in the world, and the Mediterranean diet is healthy too! Italy is the best!

The largest part of Spain is situated on the Iberian Peninsula; its territory also includes the Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean, the Balearic Islands... read more

In Spain, we have very natural and healthy food indeed, so I think it should be higher on this list or at least ranked above England.

10 Norway Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign and unitary monarchy in Northern Europe whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the island Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard... read more

Norwegian foods are healthy, considering that Norway is known for its seafood. Because of their diet, Norwegians are among the world's healthiest people.

Whale steak, sheep's head, reindeer stew, mutton soup.

The Contenders
11 Vietnam Vietnam, officially the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, is the easternmost country on the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia.

It should rank higher than this. Not many other cuisines on this list have successfully minimized their dependence on oil usage or maintained the fine balance between the freshness of herbs and spices with the meat components better than Vietnamese.

How is France higher than this? Nearly everything is fresh, no frying, no lactose, light portions. The list goes on and on. This should be number 1.

Veggies in every dish make it an ideal place to have hot pot for people who prefer less spicy food on a cold day. Yum yum!

A lot of herbs and vegetables. Good taste and good look.

Better than the U.S. by a mile for non-processed food at reasonable prices. Better bread, better cheese, better food in general as it is regulated better. GMO in the U.S. is rife. The FDA is in bed with Monsanto. The U.S. does produce good food, but many are ignorant as to what is healthy and what is not. I've lived in both places for years at a time. Basically, what ruins U.S. food can be summed up in three words: salt, fat, sugar.

22 Poland Poland, officially the Republic of Poland, is a country in Central Europe, bordered by Germany to the west; the Czech Republic and Slovakia to the south; Ukraine and Belarus to the east; and the Baltic Sea, Kaliningrad Oblast (a Russian exclave) and Lithuania to the north.
