    Within line items, frequencies of consumption of individual foods were ranked and these data were used to adjust the weighting factors within the database.

    To test the revised form, 24-hour recalls were collected from 90 elderly Hispanics and 35 elderly non-Hispanic whites.

    Added foods include plantains, avocado, mango, cassava, empanadas, and custard.
