  • effect of flour information origin and organic and consumer Attitude to Health and natural product on bread acceptability of korean consumers
    Journal of Sensory Studies, 2017
    Co-Authors: Chunghong Ha


    While bread is a staple food in western culture, it is a supplementary food in rice eating societies. The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of extrinsic flour information on bread acceptability in one of rice eating societies, Korea. Consumers evaluated six bread samples either blind or with flour information including which country it was produced and whether organic production was applied or not. Consumers’ interest in Health or in natural products was also measured. The results showed that information of using domestic flour had a strong positive effect on overall bread acceptability, while organic information particularly affected flavor preferences. Health or natural product interested people showed more distinct tendency of the above origin and organic effect. Texture liking remained unaffected by extrinsic information in all cases.

    Practical applications
    The results implied the possibility of consumers who consider bread as supplementary food may be either lacking in knowledge about bread quality in relation to flours, resulting in biased expectation induced from extrinsic information or may not care bread quality as carefully as consumers in societies who consume bread as staple food. Consumer Attitudes to Health and to natural product were observed to be important considerations when developing market strategies for bread consumers in Korea.

    Aim The Health of the Hungarian population is not as good as it could be according to the socioeconomic development of the country. Since unHealthy behavior is widespread in the population, behavior change seems to be an appropriate tool to improve Health in Hungary. to develop effective interventions, it is first necessary to identify homogeneous groups of people from the point of view of behavior change, i.e., Healthstyles. Our aim was to develop a suitable survey methodology and segmentation procedure for identifying Healthstyles in Hungary. In this article we present the results of our methodological developments. Subjects and methods Several blocks of questions were developed based on the COM-B model, which synthesizes the most recognized behavior change models. The questions cover knowledge about and Attitude to Health, somatic and mental Health status, subjective well-being, psychological characteristics, Health behaviors, social support, media consumption, Health-related information seeking and socio-demographic characteristics. Nationally representative two-stage samples of schoolchildren and adults were drawn. Iterative weighting was applied, which was supplemented with a design weight correcting the design effects. For segmentation, latent cluster analysis was used. Results Questionnaires based on the COM-B model were developed and administered to schoolchildren and adults. Several numerical and graphical methods were developed to explore the statistical characteristics of the segmentation models obtained by latent cluster analysis. Conclusions The developed survey methodology and segmentation methods were successfully applied to produce statistically stable clusters in both schoolchildren and adults. The statistical methods chosen for segmentation and validation of clusters seem suitable to identify Healthstyles.
