Research output: Contribution to journalReviewResearchpeer-review


Food choices are influenced by an individual's attitude towards foods. Food neophobia may be associated with less variety of diets, inadequate nutrient intake and high product failure rate for new food products entering the market.

This review provides an overview and discusses strengths and weaknesses of these instruments
