Abstract: Data on fat and fibre content in the Singapore diet are presented. Food availability data show an upward trend in per capita fat and fibre supplies over the last 25 years. However, food availability is usually an overestimate of actual consumption. Data on food consumption levels show that fat intake in Singapore is in reality relatively lower than the corresponding intake in Western countries. Fibre intake is also lower than in the West. At the same time, the incidence of colorectal cancer is increasing. This provides an interesting opportunity for analytical studies to further elucidate the likely role of diet in the aetiology of colorectal cancer in Singapore.
