    Food-based Dietary Guidelines - A Staged Approach. Workshop. Dublin, IRL, 1998/03.

    Presently, no national dietary guidelines - neither food-nor nutrient-based exist for Austria.

    Usually, the recommendations of the German Society of Nutrition are used instead.

    The determination of national characteristics of nutritional behaviour and food consumption can reveal starting-points for the improvement of nutritional status in Austria.

    Seven-day weighed records (children and adolescents, n=2.173) and 24-h-recalls (adults, n=2.488) were used for the evaluation of nutrient intake and food consumption.

    For a sub-sample of children and adolescents, results from laboratory assessment of biomarkers were also available (n=1.400).

    Based on fat intake, the age groups were divided into low fat intake (less than 25th percentile=28-34% fat energy) and high-fat eaters (greater than 75th percentile=38-45% fat energy).

    Approximately 75% of the Austrian population have fat intakes above 30% of energy intake, older age groups having a higher prevalence of high fat intakes.

    Intakes of saturated fatty acids reach 40-46% of total fat.

    The usual intake of dietary fibre in the Austrian population is between 17-21 g/d ; some individuals are able to achieve the recommended intakes for dietary fibre, but do not represent a significant majority of the population.

    The mean intakes of fruits are clearly higher in children and adolescents (10% of total food intake) than in adults (2-6%). (...)
