  • Description:
    Unlike the NHANES I Model Gram/Nutrient Composition Tapes, catalog nos. 4702/4703, the dietary data bank used in NHANESII consists of only the foods reported on the 24-hour recall forms collected during the survey. An expanded data base was available to the dietary interviewers for coding purposes during the collection of the data. TAPE (1]: MODEL GRAM: Tape (1) is the first part of a two-part nutrient data bank. The first 119 records of this tape are the acceptable FOOD MODELS or combinations of food models used to aid the respondent in recalling amounts of foods reported on the 24-hour recall form. The second part of this tape consists of 2605 foods in number, food code number, numeric order with designated food group preferred model code, appropriate gram conversion factor, and alphameric description. When listed by food group, the MODEL GRAM tape providedt he basis for the coding manual used by dietary interviewers. In some instances, more than one food was assigned the same food code, but only when the nutrient composition for each of the foods was extremely similar. TAPE (2): NUTRIBJ’TCOMR3SITION: Tape (2) provides a nutrient analysis of the 260S foods found on the MODEL GRAM TAPE. Calories and seventeen nutrients per 100 gram edible portion are provided for each food. Nutrient values used to update foods on this tape reflect the nutrients available in the food between 1976 and 1980. These nutrient values were obtained either from the manufacturer, or from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s revised Handbook No. 8, sections 1-6 and data tape 456-3 (based on USDA Agriculture Handbook No. 456). For commercial foods that were reported ingested at least twenty times, the nutrient values reflect the most appropriate information (1980) available from the manufacturer. If the food company did not provide the needed information, nutrient values from other sources were used, where possible. Updated and may manufacturer. Foods reported not reflect he fewer than twenty times were not most current nutrient analysis rom the manufacturer.
