BARTON, K.L., MASSON, L.F., WRIEDEN, W.L., ANDERSON, A.S., SHERRIFF, A. and ARMSTRONG, J.A. 2018. Has the contribution of selected foods to intakes of energy, fat, saturated fat and sugar changed over time? Presented at the 2018 Nutrition Society spring conference: nutrient-nutrient interaction, 26-27 March 2018, Glasgow, UK.
Progress towards the Scottish Dietary goals has been monitored since 2001, principally using Scottish food purchase data collected annually by the Office for National Statistics. Since national and global food supplies are constantly evolving, it is important to verify the contribution different foods and drinks make to nutrient intake to ensure that the most important indicators are included in dietary goals and monitoring. The purpose of this work was to explore any change in the contribution of different food categories to energy, fat, saturated fat and non-milk extrinsic sugars (NMES) intakes over time.
