This website provides information about the intakes of specific foods within food groups. This information helps researchers understand how well diets compare to recommendations and gives context for dietary guidance. Examining the top sources of dietary constituents that should be reduced (for example, unhealthy fats, added sugars, refined grains) is especially helpful for identifying targets for changes in the marketplace and food environment.
