Abstract

Nutritional habits between urban and rural population differ as much as life style and socioeconomic standards of these populations. In Croatia, rural populations are mostly live stock producers. Their nutrition frequently depends on their own production, which includes high quantity of cured meat products, eggs and dairy products. Data were obtained from longitudinal the Croatian Adult health Survey and pilot cross-sectional survey in three villages in Sisacko-moslavacka county. Our findings show that there is no great difference between urban and rural population regarding salt intake. The difference is in the type of food and food preparation, as well as life style. We propose combination of more culturally and socially sensitive questionnaires along with analytical methods that include biological matrix, such as 24-hour urine collection.

Abstract in Croatian

UNOS SOLI, SKRIVENI RIZIK ZA RURALNU POPULACIJU: PRIKAZ SLUČAJA SELO SJEVEROVAC, SISAČKO MOSLAVAČKA ŽUPANIJA ----- Prehrambene navike između urbane i rurlane populacije razlikuju se kao i životni stilovi i socioekonomski statusi tih populacija. U Hrvatskoj ruralne populacije su pretožno uzgajivači stoke, a njihova prehrana ovisi o vlastitoj proizvodnji što uključuje veće količine mesnih prerađevina, jaja i mliječnih proizvoda. Podaci za ovu studiju su dobiveni iz Hrvatske zdravstvene ankete te pilot projekta u tri sela u Sisačko moslavačkoj županiji. Rezultati su pokazali da nema razlike između urbane i ruralne populacije u unosu soli, ali razlika postoji u vrsti namirnica i načinu pripreme. Smatramo da bi upitnici morali biti socijalno i kulturološki osjetljiviji te da je potrebno uključiti i analitičke metode bioloških matrica, a sve u cilju dobivanja što vjerodostojnijih rezultata.
