Abstract

Intakes of dietary fibre in a random sample of 102 women living in a large South Wales village were measured by a four-day weighed dietary record and by questionnaire. The mean weekly intake of total dietary fibre calculated from the weighed records was 105.8g and that computed from questionnaires was 101.8g. The two methods indicated good agreement (r=0.51). Mean weekly cereal fibre intakes from weighed records and questionnaires were 46.6g and 46.4g respectively (r=0.69), and mean weekly fruit and vegetable fibre intakes were 59.2g and 55.4g respectively (r=0.34). The correlations were also good among a smaller group of 38 ‘health food shoppers’, consuming a high fibre diet. The questionnaire may therefore be used to obtain reliable data on dietary fibre intakes in free-living populations.
