An Effective One-Hour Consumer-Education Program on Knowledge, Attitude, and Behavior Toward Functional Foods
An education intervention was designed by Purdue Extension to improve functional food knowledge of Indiana residents. A questionnaire was created to examine the ability of the intervention to change participants' knowledge, attitudes, and dietary behaviors regarding functional foods. A 31-slide PowerPoint presentation, accompanying script, and additional handouts were created for this intervention. In this sample, a 1-hour functional food intervention significantly improved consumers' knowledge regarding functional foods immediately after the intervention and 6 weeks later. Participants' consumption behaviors increased significantly at 6 weeks.
