Nurcan Yabancı*, Işıl Şimşek.

Abstract
120 boys and 120 girls, 240 students in total, who live in government dormitories, were included in this study carried out to determine status of probiotic product consumption of university students in November-December 2006. It was found that 45.4% students did not know anything about probiotic product. 29.2% of boy students and 42.5% of girl students stated that they consumed probiotic products (p<0.05). The incidence of probiotic product consumption was higher at girls (p<0.05). It was determined that 88.4% of those consuming probiotic products consumed these products willingly, 79.1% were affected by advertisements, 61.6% read the labels on products and 84.9% benefited from these products. It is considered that studies to be conducted to increase the consumption of probiotic products would have positive contributions in health and nutrition.

Key words: probiotic, university students, functional foods



Üniversite Öğrencilerinin Probiyotik Ürün Tüketim Durumları

Özet
Üniversite öğrencilerinin probiyotik ürün tüketim durumlarını saptamak amacıyla Kasım-Aralık 2006 tarihleri arasında yürütülen bu çalışmaya Ankara’da bulunan bir erkek ve bir kız öğrenci yurdunda kalan 120 erkek, 120 kız olmak üzere toplam 240 üniversite öğrencisi alınmıştır. Öğrencilerin %45.4’ünün probiyotik ürünler hakkında bilgilerinin olmadığı belirlenmiştir. Erkek öğrencilerin %29.2’si, kız öğrencilerin %42.5’i probiyotik ürünleri tükettiklerini bildirmişlerdir (p<0.05). Probiyotik ürün tüketim sıklığı kızlarda daha fazladır (p<0.05). Probiyotik ürün tüketenlerin %88.4’ünün bu ürünleri severek tükettiği, %79.1’inin reklamlardan etkilendiği, %61.6’sının bu ürünlerin etiketlerini okuduğu, %84.9’unun bu ürünlerden yarar gördüğü saptanmıştır. Probiyotik ürünlerin tüketimlerinin artırılmasına yönelik yapılacak çalışmaların sağlık ve beslenme üzerine olumlu katkılar sağlayacağı düşünülmektedir.
