BMC PUBLIC HEALTH 24/09/20 Consumer perception of food variety in the UK: an exploratory mixed-methods analysis. Participant characteristics Participants included 138 females and 102 males; for 1 participant, their identified gender was not assigned at birth.
Gender was unknown for 2 participants. See the supplementary materials (‘Additional file 1’) for details of location, ethnicity, and occupation. Mean scores on subscales of the TFEQ-R18 were comparable to the literature, falling just below the midpoint of each subscale [24, 33]. Most participants seemed to be unaware of the study aims; when reporting their beliefs about the aim of the study, five participants made a general reference to food variety, and one participant referred to an interest in defining variety. Main results Directed content analysis showed that participants referred to six predefined categories of variety identified in the literature when presented with food photographs; dietary variety, brand variety, across-meal variety, variety between courses, variety within a single course, and variety within a single food.

Introduction. NUTRIENTS 12/07/19 Consumer Understanding and Culinary Use of Legumes in Australia. While health benefits of legume consumption are well documented, intake is well below recommendations in many Western cultures, and little is known regarding culinary use and consumer understanding of these foods.
This study aimed to investigate consumption, knowledge, attitudes, and culinary use of legumes in a convenience sample of Australians. An online computer-based survey was used to gather data and demographic characteristics. Respondents (505 individuals answered in full or in part) were regular consumers of legumes (177/376 consumed legumes 2–4 times weekly).
Chickpeas, green peas, and kidney beans were most often consumed, and were made into most commonly Mexican, then Indian and Middle Eastern meals. Consumers correctly identified protein and dietary fibre (37%) as key nutritional attributes.

Background In South Asia, the proportion of people living below the international poverty line ($1.90 per day) has declined significantly in recent decades, from a little over 44 percent in 1990 (500 million people) to about 15 percent in 2013 (257 million people). India (21%), Bangladesh (15%), and Nepal (15%) drive these rates; with less than 10 percent of people living in poverty in Bhutan, Maldives, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka (World Bank, 2018a). Inequality in the region remains high. The Gini index of income distribution (ranging from 0 for perfect equality to 100 for perfect inequality) hovers between 31 in Pakistan to 39 in Sri Lanka (World Bank, 2018b).
OBESITY 14/11/17 Trends in Beverage Consumption Among Children and Adults, 2003‐2014. Introduction Sugar‐sweetened beverages (SSBs) are a leading source of added sugar to the diet for adults and children in the United States 1.
The consumption of SSBs is strongly linked to obesity 2-5, though some studies have found null results 6-8. On a given day, about half of adults and two‐thirds of children consume at least one SSB 1. In recent years, SSB consumption has begun to decline 9; however, rates of SSB consumption have remained persistently higher for racial and ethnic minorities 1, who are also at higher risk for obesity 10. Reducing SSB consumption is the focus of many public health efforts in the United States. Also critical is understanding how beverage intake has changed overall in order to identify key future areas to target, as SSBs represent only one source of beverage calories.
Methods. EFSA 01/08/18 Belgian national food consumption survey in children. BMC PUBLIC HEALTH 12/01/18 Socio-demographic and lifestyle determinants of dietary patterns in French-speaking Switzerland, 2009–2012. This is one of the few studies to characterize empirically-derived dietary patterns in the French-speaking Swiss population.
Three patterns were identified, and several socio-demographic and lifestyle factors were found to be associated with them. Factors associated with dietary patterns Women had higher PRRs and scores for the “Fruits & Vegetables” pattern and lower PRRs and scores for the “Meat & fries” and the “Fatty & sugary” patterns, a finding in agreement with the literature [7, 33]. These findings confirm the higher importance of diet for women compared to men, a finding also reported when assessing compliance to dietary recommendations . Elderly subjects had higher PRRs and scores for the “Fruits & Vegetables” pattern and lower PRRs and scores for the “Meat & fries” pattern, a finding in agreement with the literature . Being born in Portugal or Spain was positively associated with both the “Meat & fries” and the “Fruits & Vegetables” patterns.

PLOS 03/11/16 Effectiveness of Pricing Strategies on French Fries and Fruit Purchases among University Students: Results from an On-Campus Restaurant Experiment. Abstract Objectives This study examined the effect of a 10 and 20% meal price increase when choosing French fries and a 10 and 20% meal price reduction when choosing fruit for dessert on university students’ purchasing behaviour in an on-campus restaurant.
The moderating effect of gender was also investigated. Secondly, this study aimed at gaining further insight into reasons why these price manipulations did or did not change students’ purchasing behaviour. Br J Nutr. 2016 Apr;115(8):1498-507.

Nutrition Journal 2010, 9:36 Relative validation of a food frequency questionnaire for national health and nutrition monitoring. The DEGS-FFQ showed a reasonable to good agreement in ranking of participants towards their intake for most food groups compared to two 24-hour dietary recalls. The spearman's correlation coefficients for intakes measured by the FFQ and the 24-hour dietary recalls ranged between 0.15 and 0.80 with most values of 0.30 and higher.
The observed correlation coefficients were in a similar range as observed in other validation studies [15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20]. For example, a validation of the FFQ used in the German EPIC cohort showed Spearman rank correlation coefficients between the FFQ and twelve 24-hour dietary recalls between 0.14 and 0.90 . Although a direct comparison is difficult because of differences in food classification, similar correlations were seen for coffee and tea, bread, salty snacks, spreads, fruits, legumes, potatoes, soft drinks, milk, cheese and processed meat.

PLOS 30/06/16 Beyond Wishful Thinking: Integrating Consumer Preferences in the Assessment of Dietary Recommendations. Abstract Convenience, taste, and prices are the main determinants of food choices. Complying with dietary recommendations therefore imposes a “taste cost” on consumers, potentially hindering adoption of those recommendations. The study presents and applies a new methodology, based on economic theory, to quantify this taste cost and assess the health and welfare effects of different dietary recommendations. Then, by comparison of those effects, we identify socially desirable recommendations that are most compatible with consumer preferences (i.e., that best balance health benefits against”taste cost”) and should be prioritized for promotion.

Abstract Obesity is a global public health priority. Restrained eating is related to obesity and total energy intake but associations with the eating patterns are unclear. PLOS 01/02/16 Assessing Projection Bias in Consumers’ Food Preferences. Abstract The aim of this study is to test whether projection bias exists in consumers’ purchasing decisions for food products. To achieve our aim, we used a non-hypothetical experiment (i.e., experimental auction), where hungry and non-hungry participants were incentivized to reveal their willingness to pay (WTP). The results confirm the existence of projection bias when consumers made their decisions on food products.
In particular, projection bias existed because currently hungry participants were willing to pay a higher price premium for cheeses than satiated ones, both in hungry and satiated future states. Moreover, participants overvalued the food product more when they were delivered in the future hungry condition than in the satiated one.

ARS USDA - JUNE 2015 - AgResearch Magazine - "Quick Serve" Foods Slow To Change. When it comes to eating out and eating healthy portion sizes, knowledge is power. Agricultural Research Service-funded scientists investigated trends in portion sizes and the calorie, sodium, saturated fat, and trans fat content of popular meal combos at three U.S. quick-serve chain restaurants. They found little change in portion sizes during a period of 18 years. On a positive note, the study recorded a decline in trans fat content of French fries that followed the first local legislative ban on trans fats in restaurant foods, which was passed by New York City in 2006. The study was led by nutritional biochemist Alice H. BMC 30/05/15 An interpretive study of food, snack and beverage advertisements in rural and urban El Salvador.
