BNI™ 086.62na: Wheat crisps (typical)

foodBNI™ 86.62na: Eta Skof Munchos cheese & onion, Griffin's, NZ, 2012.

'Eta Skof Munchos cheese & onion' represents the prototypical (median) wheat crisps2, taken from a sample of 6 products3. The sample was collated as part of a research on the nutritional composition of snacks in New Zealand.

This prototype is more representative of those who buy a particular brand and flavor, as well as of the overall 'universe' of wheat crisps products. However, an average based on mean values for the aggregated sample (dietBNI) may be more representative of those who change brands and flavors often, as well as of the population, in general.
