Abstract
  • In response to the growing popularity of the Mediterranean Diet, it is important to understand that there are variations between the diets of the many Mediterranean countries. This is certainly true of the diets in Spain, especially among the younger generations. Therefore, should the term “Mediterranean Diet” be universally applied to all diets of Mediterranean countries? Two such diets, from the Basque Country and Andalusia regions in Spain, were examined for their nutritional content, and then compared to the diet standards established for the Mediterranean Diet from Crete. This paper found differences in the diets from the Basque Country and Andalusia, notably when it comes to meat consumption, especially of beef and poultry products, and dairy products besides yogurt in small quantities. Because of that, it is only possible to consider the diet of Andalusia as a Mediterranean diet because of its nutrient profile that includes high consumption of grains, fruits, vegetables, and olive oil. More information is needed to understand how the nutrition profiles of the diets affects overall health and mortality in the regions.
