Preferences and eating frequency for dairy products among young women


Study on preferences and eating frequency for milk and dairy products was made among 162 young women, including 32 pregnant ones. The high preferences for fruit yoghurts and bio-yoghurts, fruit junkets, cottage cheese and hard cheese were observed. The hard cheese, fruit yoghurts and bio-yoghurts, and fruit junkets were mostly eaten! Pregnancy resulted in higher preference and intake of sour milk beverages, like kefir and buttermilk, and high-fat beverages, like condensed milk. Correlation between preference and consumption was significant for total sample. The most significant choice factors included: freshness, taste, quality and stability. Rational nutrition, fat content and novelty on the market were more important for pregnant women.
