Resumo: Frequent consumption of dietary fibres can have favourable effect in the prevention and treatment of several diseases. Despite of these positive effects, Hungarian consumption of dietary fibre, as well as fruits and vegetables are below the recommended levels. Thus the aim of this study was to analyse the fibre consumption habits, the related level of knowledge, as well as the recognition of the potential information sources to ensure authentic information about dietary fibres. For this purpose a questionnaire survey was completed with the help of 303 Hungarian participants in 2014. Results showed that participants with higher level of consumption of fruits and vegetables had higher level of knowledge about dietary fibres. Even though respondents were aware of the positive health effects of dietary fibre, their consumption habits do not reflect that. Internet was proved as a utilized and preferred information source, so stressing of the authentic websites for the consumers about dietary fibres is an outstanding task. Results indicated that regarding the multiple beneficial effects of dietary fibres, for the supporting of mindful consumer decisions accurate and reliable information must be ensured for consumers, as well as authentic sources have to be designated.
