AbstractContradictory results have been reported in studies associating dietary fiber (DF) intake and the incidence of colorectal cancer. Most studies focused mainly on the amount of total DF, but DF is a heterogeneous complex and its components are generally ignored. The aim of this work was to compare the amount and composition of DF intake in Murcia (Spain) and Copenhagen (Denmark). Total dietary fiber intake was a 31% higher in Murcia than in Copenhagen, the ratio of insoluble DF/soluble DF being similar in the two diets. DF in Murcia contains major amounts of nonstarch polysaccharides and polyphenolic compounds, mainly derived from the high consumption of fruits and vegetables (6.7 servings). Resistant starch intake was of the same order in the two regions while resistant protein intake was higher in Murcia. The quantitative and qualitative differences in DF intake may contribute to understand the differences in colorectal cancer incidence in Mediterranean and Scandinavian areas. © 2007 American Chemical Society.
