Consumer reactions to foods with nutrition and health claims

Wim Verbeke UGent (2010) AGRO FOOD INDUSTRY HI-TECH. 21(6). p.5-8
abstract
This contribution provides a summary of insights about European Union (EU) consumer reactions and their determinants in relation to foods with nutrition and health claims. Studies show that consumer acceptance is far from unconditional and depends on beliefs about functional foods being viewed a marketing stunt, as well as on familiarity and perceptions related to the perceived fit of ingredients and carrier or base products rather than on classical demographic characteristics. Uncertainties at the industry level regarding the political and legislative process of substantiation and approval of nutrition and health claims in the EU may further be fuelled by concerns and scepticism at the consumer level.
