Denen eten aanzienlijk meer volkoren

De inname van volkoren door de Denen is sinds 2004 sterk toegenomen. Ook is het aantal Denen die voldoende volkorenproducten eten toegenomen. Dit blijkt uit een nieuwe studie die is uitgevoerd door het National Food Institute, de Technische Universiteit van Denemarken.

Together with The Danish Wholegrain Campaign, the National Food Institute has investigated how much wholegrain Danes eat.

The study shows that the wholegrain intake of Danes has increased from 32 grams to 55 grams per day. Children eat almost as much wholegrain as adults, while boys and men eat slightly more wholegrain than girls and women. 

"Our study indicates that Danes do not eat more bread and grain products than earlier. The increase is due to the fact that today foods like coarse wheat bread and pasta contain more wholegrain. Furthermore, it has become easier to choose wholegrain products", says senior adviser Heddie Mejborn from the National Food Institute. 

Besides the fact that Danes on average eat more wholegrain, the proportion of Danes who meet the recommendation of eating 75 grams of wholegrain per 10 mega joules has increased as well. The proportion has increased from 6% to 27%, this new study shows. Today, more children than adults eat enough wholegrain. More than one third of children meet the recommendation compared to one fourth of adults. In 2000-2004, only 5% of children and 7% of adults met the recommendation. 

"It is very positive that more Danes now meet the wholegrain recommendation. Wholegrain contains dietary fibres, vitamins, minerals and health-improving substances which are important for reducing the risk of diseases like diabetes, heart diseases and certain cancers", says Heddie Mejborn.
