aThese mean food group and subgroup-specific intakes are rough estimates calculated from the raw data on which these nutrient contributions are based. The high number of non-consumers in some of the food (sub)groups hindered the adjustment for within-person variation.

bRanking of the 10 food subgroups with the highest contribution to the total, animal or plant protein intakes.

cIncludes tofu, quorn and pulses.

dIncludes eggs reported separately and eggs included in disaggregated food mixtures.

eIncludes foods or components with negligible contributions to the total nutrient intakes that could not be categorized in the above food (sub)groups (e.g. quiches herbs and spices, monosodium glutamate, starch, plain gelatin, artificial sweeteners, pectin and cocoa powder).
