Food-based Dietary Guidelines - A Staged Approach. Workshop. Dublin, IRL, 1998/03.
The Nordic and Swedish Nutrition Recommendations emphasize the balance between macronutrients in the diet.
The amount of saturated and total fat should be limited to c. 10% energy and 30% energy, respectively, and the amount of total carbohydrates should be 55-60% energy.
Data from the first Swedish national dietary survey in 1989 show that the average diet is too high in fat, especially saturated fat (36-37% energy and 16% energy, respectively) while the content of total carbohydrates and dietary fibre is too low.
However, parts of the population consume a diet that meets the recommendation for a particular macronutrient.
A comparison of subjects with a low or high intake of total fat and saturated fat, dietary fibre or fruit and vegetables show some common trends with respect to the characteristics of a dietary pattern equal or close to the recommendations, e.g. more frequent consumption of fruit and vegetables and a lower consumption of some fat-rich foods, such as spreads, cheese and sausages.
