Background/Aim: The objective of this review was to collect data on the dietary intake of total fat and saturated (SFA), monounsaturated (MUFA) and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), especially linoleic (LA), α-linolenic (ALA), eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic fatty acids, in adults from various countries and to compare them with current recommendations for fat intake. Methods: Weighted mean intake data were collected from national dietary surveys, large cross-sectional studies and/or… 
Intake of Fatty Acids in General Populations Worldwide Does Not Meet Dietary Recommendations to Prevent Coronary Heart Disease: A Systematic Review of Data from 40 Countries
TLDR
In many countries, the fatty acids intake of adults does not meet the levels that are recommended to prevent chronic diseases, and the relation between SFA and PUFA intakes shows that lower intakes of SFA in the populations are not accompanied by higher intakes of PUFA, as is recommended for preventing coronary heart disease.
Intake and sources of dietary fatty acids in Europe: Are current population intakes of fats aligned with dietary recommendations?
TLDR
Adhering to food‐based dietary guidelines for prevention of CHD and other chronic diseases in Europe, including eating less fatty meats, low‐fat instead of full‐fat dairy, and more vegetable fats and oils will help to reduce SFA intake and at the same time increase PUFA intake.
Trends in dietary fat and fatty acid intakes and related food sources among Chinese adults: a longitudinal study from the China Health and Nutrition Survey (1997–2011)
TLDR
Fatty acid intakes and profile in Chinese adults are different from those reported in other countries, andakes of 18:2 and 18:3 fatty acids showed significant upward trends in both sexes.
Health Significance of Fat Quality in the Diet
This paper summarizes three presentations on the global and Latin American perspectives on the health significance of fat quality in the diet given at the 16th Congress of the Society of Latin
[Dietary fats and cardiovascular health].
TLDR
A multidisciplinary panel of experts from the following institutions has developed the present joint statement targeted at both adults and children of different ages, with the purpose of spreading improved knowledge on the importance of changing to a healthy diet with a well-balanced fat intake for industrialized populations.

Overall nutrient and total fat intake among Japanese people: The INTERLIPID Study Japan.
TLDR
The results suggest that in 40-59-year-old men with a healthy body mass index, total fat intake between 20 and 27% of total energy may best support adequate intake of other nutrients.

Dietary intakes and food sources of fatty acids for Belgian women, focused on n-6 and n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids
TLDR
The mean LA and overall n-6 PUFA intake corresponded with the recommendation, with part of the population exceeding the upper level, and the population showed a large deficit for LNA and n-3 PUFA.
Requirements of dietary fats to meet nutritional needs & prevent the risk of atherosclerosis--an Indian perspective.
TLDR
To arrive at the fat requirements for Indians, invisible fat and fatty acid compositions were determined in commonly consumed foods and the use of more than one oil is recommended, however, it is necessary to evaluate the long-term health benefits of the recommended oil combinations before permitting commercial preparation and endorsing health claims.
Quantity and Quality of Dietary Fat, Carbohydrate, and Fiber Intake in the German EPIC Cohorts
TLDR
Adjusted mean dietary intake estimates demonstrated that the contribution of fat as well as n–6 and n–3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) to the total daily energy intake was higher in both women and men of EPic-Potsdam compared to EPIC-Heidelberg.
Dietary intakes and food sources of omega-6 and omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids
TLDR
The results indicate that the majority of Australians are failing to meet intake recommendations for LC n−3 PUFA (>0.2 g per day) and emphasize the need for strategies, to increase the availability and consumption of n−2-containing foods.
Dietary intakes and food sources of n−6 and n−3 PUFA in french adult men and women
TLDR
The intake of individual n−6 and n−3 PUFA has been estimated in 4,884 adult subjects (2,099 men and 2,785 women), volunteers from the French SUVI.MAX intervention trial, and the intakes of α-linolenic acid, and to a lesser extent of linoleic acids were highly correlated with that of lipids.
Contribution of specific foods to fat, fatty acids, and cholesterol in the development of a food frequency questionnaire in Koreans.
TLDR
The value of this FFQ is that it can estimate usual dietary food patterns and nutrient intake in Koreans for epidemiological studies and can also potentially be used to study the relationship between specific diseases and nutrient intakes of interest.
Comparison of dietary intakes of micro- and macronutrients in rural, suburban and urban populations in Costa Rica
TLDR
In rural areas, low socio-economic status and low intake of unsaturated fatty acids appear to be the prevalent CVD risk factors, while in urban areas they were low physical activity, high trans-fatty acids in the diet and adipose tissue, and low dietary fibre intake.
Major types of dietary fat and risk of coronary heart disease: a pooled analysis of 11 cohort studies.
TLDR
The associations suggest that replacing SFAs with PUFAs rather than MUFAs or carbohydrates prevents CHD over a wide range of intakes.

TLDR
The Technical Committee on Dietary Lipids of the International Life Sciences Institute North America sponsored a workshop to consider whether the body of evidence specific to the major chronic diseases in the United States--coronary heart disease, cancer, and cognitive decline--had evolved sufficiently to justify reconsideration of DRI for EPA+.
