Background: The evaluation of the amount and type of edible oils can significantly help to raise the people’s awareness about how to use this type of food product. The aim of this study was to determine consumption pattern of various edible oils and its related factors based on PRECEDE model.
Materials and Methods: This cross sectional descriptive analytic study was performed on 300 urban and rural women referring to health centers in Qom province. The participants were selected via multi-stage sampling method. The data were collected using standard questionnaire of PRECEDE model and analyzed by SPSS V.20 using independent t-test, paired t-test, ANOVA, and Pearson correlation coefficient.
Results: The results of this study showed that 46.4% of urban women and 53.6% of rural women used solid oil. There was a significant difference between urban and rural households in terms of the consumption of tallow oil (p<0.05), as the consumption of tallow oil was more prevalent in rural households than in urban households. Also, there was a statistically significant difference between the two groups of urban and rural women in terms of the mean score of consumption of healthy edible oils and reinforcing factors (p<0.05), as the mean scores of urban women were better than those of rural women.
Conclusion: Implementation of training programs using training models such as the PRECEDE model can help to modify and correct the pattern of consumption of edible oils, especially in rural areas and promote the level of health of the community.
