Abstract

The impact of health claims on purchase intent, emotional response and liking has never been previously reported. In this study prebiotic enriched bread was used as a model functional food. Purchase intent, emotional response and liking were investigated in 3 phases: 1: focus groups were used to gauge consumer perception of health claims and functional foods. 2: the impact of health claims on purchase intent and emotional responses were measured using an online survey (n = 122) and 3: hedonic ratings on bread rolls presented with or without any associated claims were obtained (n = 100). A cluster analysis of the purchase intent data identified two clusters of consumers who were either receptive or non-receptive to health claims. Receptive and non-receptive consumers significantly differed in the emotions they reported with respect to the claims. The hedonic ratings did not significantly differ between the breads tasted with or without health claims.
