  1. aP represents Oneway analysis of variance test; means with different superscripts differ significantly (LSD test, p < 0.05). r represents Pearson correlation; asterisk indicates significant correlation (p < 0.05). HEI-2010 analyses adjusted for energy intake, body weight, and gender
  2. bDistribution not normal; nonparametric tests uses for statistical analyses (Kruskal Wallis Test and Spearman correlation)
