Intake of ultra-processed foods by women surviving breast cancer
Evaluate the intake of ultra-processed foods in women surviving breast cancer.
Of the calories ingested by the patients, 27.1% were ultra-processed foods. Those with high ingestion of ultra-processed foods had lower intake of protein (p=0.0372) and fibers (p=0.0458) and higher intake of polyunsaturated fat (p=0.0019) and sodium (p=0.0068). The ingestion of ultra-processed foods was related to lower intake of in natura foods and higher intake of sodium, total fat and its fractions (p<0.05).
