Question

What is the relationship between added sugars consumption and achieving nutrient and food group recommendations?

Approach to Answering the Question
Data Analysis

Subcommittee
Data Analysis and Food Pattern Modeling Cross-Cutting Working Group

Data Analysis Protocol
Developed for each scientific question being examined, the protocol describes the plan for how the data analysis will be conducted. The protocol provides the:

  • Analytic framework,
  • Analytic plan, and
  • Analysis results.

Total intakes of added sugars from all sources will be evaluated in the following ways:

  • Usual intake distribution of added sugars intakes in the U.S. population
  • Percent of population with added sugars intakes <10% and ≥10% of total energy intake

Understanding the relationship between added sugars consumption and achieving nutrient and food group recommendations will be evaluated in the following ways:

  • Food category sources contribution to total added sugars intakes
  • Nutrient and food group contributions from food category sources of added sugars as a percent of energy, nutrients and other dietary components.

For additional details, see the full protocol for the question, what is the relationship between added sugars consumption and achieving nutrient and food group recommendations? This protocol is up-to-date as of: 10/22/2019.
