Dietary Patterns In The U.S. Are Linked To Demographic Factors

March 14, 2012: 11:54 AM EST
Researchers have determined that there are five basic dietary patterns in the U.S., each of which is linked to demographic factors, including age, race, region, gender, income and education. The patterns were discovered through analysis of 21,636 questionnaires completed by black and white adults aged 45 and older. The five patterns are: southern (fried, processed meats, sugary drinks); traditional (Chinese and Mexican food, pasta, pizza, soup); healthy (fruits, vegetables, grains); sweets (snacks and desserts); and alcohol (proteins, alcohol, salads). The researchers found that blacks were more likely than whites to eat a southern dietary pattern and did not eat the alcohol pattern. And men, lower-income people and non-college graduates were more likely to follow the southern pattern.
