Searching for 'spice' on FAO Stat (fascinating info) doesn't seem to point to the source. How can I find it? Thanks

Surprised to not see Thailand on here, especially when neighbouring Burma scored in the top 10.

Yeah that almost has to be a mistake, right? Also surprised by the lack of Mexico. Most of the spices popular around the world originated there and it's a big country that eats a lot of spicy food. But not as spicy as Thai food of course. Brazil was another curious omission.

This random quiz has made me quite curious. What an odd assortment of numbers and countries. Makes me want to go down a rabbit hole and find out which spices each country is making.
