Food based dietary patterns and diseases.
The amounts, proportions, variety, or combination of different foods and beverages in diets, as well as the frequency with which they are habitually consumed, are referred to as food habits. Given that food consumption is a multi-dimensional exposure, there are a plethora of possible food combinations to investigate. In nutrition research, how these combinations are described is largely determined by the research question and study design. Food consumption is specifically manipulated in intervention studies, but sensitivity to food habits is derived from self-reported intake in observational studies.Author(s): Kat Edison
