Grain consumption patterns, their respective nutrient contribution and related health outcomes in Canadians

More than 41 percent of field crops produced in Canada are consumed within this country. However, there is little information available about the common consumption patterns of grain-based foods among Canadians as well as the health outcomes associated with different degrees of grain-based food consumption. Using the most recent Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) released in July 2017, this study investigates the data on consumption pattern of grain-based foods and contributions of grains to Canadian diet, health and wellbeing. The data will also be analyzed to understand the contributions of specific grain constituents such as dietary fiber and minor components such as minerals and vitamins to diet, health and wellness of Canadians. The results of this research will benefit the partner organization, consumers and policy makers by providing information about the status of grains consumption in Canada. TO BE CONT’D
