why isn't it "den amerikanske kost"? Why do you drop the definite article in this case?

It's not needed; you can include it if you want but you don't have to. If you do, you're adding stress to the American diet, and frankly, I think it's under enough stress as it is :-)

I don't really know why, but I know that "den amerikanske kost" is entirely correct.

"The American" Kan lige så godt være "Den amerikanske"
