Data from the FAO suite of food security indicators can be accessed on FAOSTAT.

Average protein supply (g/capita/day) (3-year average)

This indicator is calculated by FAOSTAT and is part of the FAO Suite of Food Security Indicators -- Dimension: availability (http://www.fao.org/economic/ess/ess-fs/ess-fadata/en/#.WTlX9BPytPU). The indicator measures the national average protein supply (expressed in grams per caput per day) and provides information on the quality of the diet. The indicator is calculated in three year averages, from 1990-92 to 2011-13, to reduce the impact of possible errors in estimated DES, due to the difficulties in properly accounting of stock variations in major food (Source: Faostat - http://www.fao.org/faostat/en/#data/FS).
