Food consumption according to their degree of processing in patients with established atherosclerotic disease
Analyze the consumption of foods according to their degree of processing in patients with established atherosclerosis disease.
Half of consumed calories came from natural or minimally processed foods (50.9%), followed by ultra-processed food products (35.1%). The largest contribution in calories came from meats, cereals/roots/tubers, breads, and sweets. No significant difference was found in quartiles of consumption of ultra-processed foods. In this sample, consumption of processed/ultra-processed food was almost the same as natural/minimally processed foods.
