Abstract

ROZOWSKI, JAIME  and  CASTILLO, ÓSCAR. Is the Chilean Diet a Mediterranean-type Diet?. Biol. Res. [online]. 2004, vol.37, n.2, pp.313-319. ISSN 0716-9760.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-97602004000200018.

Food intake in Chile has changed markedly in the last decades, showing an increase in fat consumption and presently a small fruit and vegetables intake. A parallel is made between the Chilean and Mediterranean diet (mainly the one from Spain, Italy, and Greece), both currently and from 50 years ago. The main differences and similarities are based on food availability. Although Chilean diet seems to be approaching the traditional Mediterranean diet of the 60's, there is concern about changes that are moving away from Chilean traditional diet and towards a western one. A new food pyramid for Chile is proposed based on the traditional Mediterranean-type diet
