  1. Fulltext. Macronutrient intakes among adult hispanics : a comparison of Mexican Americans, Cuban Americans, and mainland Puerto Ricans.

    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    Objectives

    The purpose of this study was to compare energy and macronutrient intakes between adult Mexican Americans, Cuban Americans, mainland Puerto Ricans, and non-Hispanies.

    Methods

    Age-specific mean intakes were estimated based on 24-hour recalls from the Hispanic Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (HHANES) (1982 to 1984) an the Second National Health Survey (NHANES II) (1976 to 1980) and were compred with the use of t tests.

    Results

    Mexican Americans had higher total fat, saturated fat, and monounsaturated fat intakes than did Puerto Ricans and older Cuban Americans.

    Cuban Americans and Puerto Ricans had similar intakes, except for younger Cuban Americans, who had higher total and saturated fat and lower carbohydrate intakes.

    Cholesterol intakes among Mexican American men and 60-to 74-year-old women were higher than those among other Hispanic groups.

    Carbohydrate and protein intakes were higher among Hispanic groups compared with those among non-Hispanics while total fat intakes were generally lower.

    Conclusions

    Since macronutrient intakes differ between Hispanic groups, dietary research, recommendations, and interventions should be targeted to each group individually.

    Older Puerto Rican and Cuban American adults met population guidelines for reducing chronic disease risk for more macronutrients than any other group.
