This self-administered, semi-quantitative FFQ was developed to assess usual food consumption within the German Health Examination Survey for Adults 2008-2011 (DEGS) aged 18 to 79 years. It includes questions about the amount and frequency of consumption of 53 food items during the past four weeks. The FFQ was validated against two 24-hour recalls in 2010.
The FFQ is an adaptation of the questionnaire used in the German Health Interview and Examination Survey for Children and Adolescents (KiGGS).
