ISBNPA 2017 Workshop, few places left: Faking it: using a fake food buffet to examine food choice

Short Synopsis: In this workshop you will learn how you can use realistic food replicas (Fake Foods) to run cost and time efficient experiments to answer interesting research questions related to product, meal and portion size selection.

Experimental research involving real food is often limited by practical problems like high costs, limited infrastructure, and food preparation effort. Hence, traditional food choice experiments were often limited to a small food variety. The fake food buffet (FFB) is a simple experimental infrastructure, which can overcome these practical limitations. The FFB can be used to investigate health claims, nutrient information, nudging, educational interventions and social influences.

 

Target audience: Researchers interested in establishing a FFB infrastructure or already working with FFB and those interested in collaborating with a FFB infrastructure to answer a research question.

 

Participants will

•             Interactively learn how to use fake foods

•             Get access to relevant resources

•             Gain insight into ongoing research and technological advances

•             Connect with researchers working with FFBs
