This study will be very important in establishing reliable data on the nutrient composition of foods consumed by the community. Hundred types of foods that are served in Kelantan had been chosen in this study. Food samples for analysis were purchased from three different places of production. Macronutrients such as calorie, carbohydrate, moisture, protein, fat and ash were analyzed using the standard methods of AOAC (1995).
