Consumption of fermented foods products by adult Canadians: trends and opportunities

Growing evidence indicates fermented foods consumption can result in beneficial health outcomes. However, there is limited information on the consumption of fermented food products by the Canadian population and a lack of established dietary recommendations for fermented foods intake. With that in mind, we conducted an online survey to explore how Canadians utilize fermented foods and which factors influence fermented food consumption. Our objective was to identify consumption trends and potential opportunities for education, research, and development.
