BNI™ 127.54f: Cheese (typical)

foodBNI™ 127.54f: Bouton d'Or feta reduced salt, Goodman Fielder, NZ, 2012.

'Bouton d'Or feta reduced salt' represents the prototypical (median) cheese, taken from a sample of 29 cheeses. The sample was collated as part of a research on the nutritional composition of breakfast cereals in New Zealand.

This prototype is more representative of those who buy a particular type of cheese, as well as of the overall 'universe' of brands. However, an average based on mean values for the aggregated sample (dietBNI) may be more representative of those who eat a variety of cheese or change brands often, as well as of the population, in general.
