Tables: 4 Figures: 2 Acknowledgement: Supported by the Smart Foods Centre and Australian Research Council.The development of food groupings to guide dietary advice for people with diabetes
Objective: To describe the development and characteristics of a food categorisation system and its application to guide advice for diabetes treatment.Research Design and Methods: Foods reported as commonly consumed by 16 adults with diabetes were grouped according to macronutrient content and the type of fat to form a set of reference food groups for dietary advice purposes.Means for energy and macronutrients from individual food groups were then used to construct an overall pattern of intake targeting 8,000kJ and relative amounts of carbohydrate, protein and different types of fat (SFA10%E and PUFA~10%E).Variation in energy and macronutrients contributed by all foods partitioned into each food group was assessed by the coefficient of variation (CV) of data on the whole diet.
Results: To differentiate between sources of fat, 13 food groups emerged and 10 were deemed acceptable according to nutritional guidelines for diabetes treatment.The food group pattern was judged adequate for the achievement of dietary recommendations with low potential variation in total energy (5%) and macronutrient proportions (protein 6%, fat 6%, carbohydrate 3%), but higher variation for different types of fat (SFA 22%, MUFA 11%, PUFA 12%).Targeted proportions for these fat types were achieved only when daily servings of PUFA-rich, oils, nuts and oily fish or soy were included in an ideal intake pattern.
Conclusions: In theory, a dietary pattern constructed from food group sources of macronutrients and individual fat types results in low potential variation from recommended nutrient targets and, therefore, is appropriate to guide advice for the treatment of diabetes.
Keywords: diabetes, food groups, dietary advice, types of fat Diet is often quoted as the cornerstone of treatment for diabetes, and there is considerable evidence that advice targeting specific dietary change offers substantial benefit [1-5].Current guidelines for the treatment of diabetes and related complications provide nutrient intake recommendations, the most specific of which target the proportions of different types of fat in the diet..
Where dietary advice necessarily refers to foods, the system of advice generation, however, needs to assure that nutrient targets can be met.
A number of food guidance systems are available with varying purposes.For example, to support glycaemic control, the carbohydrate counting system  focuses on the distribution of carbohydrate and the Glycaemic Index (GI)  focuses on the type of carbohydrate throughout meals.General food guidance systems, such as the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating (AGHE)  and the Food Guide Pyramid , outline the number of servings from core food groups required to meet nutritional requirements for the general population.
Exchange lists published by the American Dietetic Association (ADA)  take a total diet approach, where all foods can fit into a healthful eating style ,and provide some information on the type of fat contained in foods .
While certain food groups are generally recognised for contributing a particular type of fat, for example meat and dairy for providing saturated fat, none of the current guidance systems provide adequate reference to food sources high in monounsaturated or polyunsaturated fats.Hence, general low-fat advice strategies based on these systems do not necessarily address specific relative amounts of different types of dietary fat .While it is acknowledged that individualising advice is fundamental to the treatment of diabetes, a structured food-based advice strategy to guide the achievement of appropriate targets for each type of fat is also required and must satisfy both recommended and practical evaluations in order to determine whether the resultant intake pattern does indeed achieve the nutrients targeted.
The aim of this paper, therefore, is to describe the development and characteristics of a food categorisation system resulting in a set of food groups inclusive of the type of fat (vegetables, cereals, fruits, milk/soymilk, meat, oily fish/soy, and MUFA and PUFA fat) and its application to guide advice to meet energy and nutrient targets with minimal potential variation for the treatment of diabetes.
Methods The process for the systematic development and evaluation of a specific food group intake pattern to guide advice for the achievement of overall energy and nutrient targets is summarised in Fig.1, and outlined in detail below: [INSERT FIG 1] Development of food groups as sources of macronutrients and fat types Identification of foods to include in the food groupsFoods to be included in a set of food groups for the achievement of specific nutrient targets were identified from foods commonly consumed by 16 women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) from Wollongong, Australia.Characteristics of the study sample have been pr
