Dietary recommendations and prevailing food and nutrient intakes in Germany.
Food-based Dietary Guidelines - A Staged Approach. Workshop. Dublin, IRL, 1998/03.
Dietary recommendations on nutrient intakes as published by the German Society of Nutrition are only met by a very small proportion of the adult population in East and in West Germany.
Dietary data from the Nutrition Survey and Risk Factor Analysis Study in West Germany and from the National Health Survey in East Germany were used to identify differences in nutrient intakes and in food consumption patterns between subgroups of the study participants that were close to, or failed to meet the dietary guidelines.
The subgroups were created by dividing subjects into quartiles on the basis of their daily intakes of total fat (% energy), saturated fatty acids (% energy), fibre (g/d) and the food group fruit and vegetables (g/d).
Comparisons of the consumption patterns between subjects in the first and in the fourth quartile of intake of the nutrients under study were performed.
Differences in food and nutrient intakes were seen among those more compliant and less compliant with the recommendations.
The presented analysis provides first indications for future improvements of the existing food-based dietary guidelines in Germany.
