Abstract

This paper examines the impact of socio-economic and demographic factors on individual intake of dietary fiber in both the away-from-home and at-home markets. Empirical results generally indicated that height, region, sex, diet status, household size, age, and income significantly affect dietary fiber intake away-from-home. On the other hand, weight, urbanization, region, race, ethnicity, sex, diet status, household size, day of consumption, age, and income significantly affect dietary fiber intake at-home. Knowledge of the influence of sociodemographic factors provides food policy makers with information necessary for the design and implementation of nutrition programs dealing with dietary fiber intake.
