Inventory as of this Action
Adult consumers in an Internet panel
will be interviewed about their views related to health claims and
other health messages on food labels. The study is to examine
whether the inclusion of the food component (i.e., a nutrient) in a
health claim makes any difference in (1) recognition of the
nutrient underlying a diet-disease relationship, (2) recognition
that there are other foods from which the nutrient can be obtained,
and (3) perceptions and attitudes toward a food. The information
will be used to help enhance FDA's understanding of consumer
responses to health claims.
