Innovative consumers were more likely to try irradiated foods than noninnovative. Implications for consumer education are presented. Key words: Food irradiation, acceptance, consumer choices, locus of control, valuesCited by: Chapter 10 Consumer Acceptance and Marketing of Irradiated Foods Ronald F. Eustice and Christine M. Bruhn. Introduction What Is Food Irradiation? Why Is Food Irradiated? Marketing of Irradiation Foods Commercial Acceptance of Irradiation Foods Resistance to “New” Technology Risks versus Benefits Irradiation of Food Commodities is the first holistic book that looks not only at the techniques, application and legislation of this method, but also addresses the concern of public opinion. Organized into logical themes and written by experts from industry, academia and research, this book will meet the needs of those working or considering. Communication regarding marketing success and benefits to consumers is more effective than providing the technical details of the technology. Retailers that are offering irradiated foods know that once irradiated foods are on the shelves, consumer acceptance is high and the “push-back” is : R. F. Eustice.

Consumer acceptance of irradiated foods in the USA is being reinforced by three key-drives; these being (i) growing public awareness of the risks from bacteria in meat (and other food products), (ii) growing levels of educational media coverage on food irradiation . Food irradiation is an efficient technology that can be used to ensure food safety by eliminating insects and pathogens to prolong the shelf life. The process could be applied to fresh or frozen products without affecting the nutritional value. Presently more than 60 countries have adopted the technology. However, the technology adaptation differs from one country to another and, in some cases Cited by: The US government says food irradiation is beneficial and doesn't change taste, texture or appearance. But are we sure food is safe when exposed to ionising radiation? What you .

This allows choice based on facts. When consumers are informed, they tend to.

Food manufacturers cite lack of consumer acceptance as the primary reason to not irradiate foods, but consumer research has shown that once consumers are educated about how irradiation works and.

It then discusses the general effects of ionizing radiation on foods; irradiation of foods, such as meats and poultry, marine and freshwater animal foods, beverages, and dairy products; government regulation of irradiated foods; and consumer acceptance of irradiated foods.

This book is a valuable source of information for food technologists. Consumer attitude and marketing studies show that, given information about irradiation, half or more will choose irradiated foods. A minority object to irradiation and will never select it. In a study, after seeing a 10 minute video describing irradiation, interest in buying irradiated foods among California and Indiana consumers increased fron 57% to 82%.

Demand for irradiated food products depends on acceptance by consumers. Although public knowledge about irradiation continues to be limited, interest in purchasing safety‐enhanced irradiated food is increasing, especially after people receive information about potential benefits and by: Consumer studies consistently demonstrate that when provided with science-based information, a high percentage of consumers prefer irradiated foods (Bruhn ; Gallup Organization et.

al., ). The effect of information and product samples on consumer attitudes was documented in a Purdue University study (Pohlman, et. al., ).Cited by: Consumer Acceptance and Marketing of Irradiated Foods. Ronald F. Eustice. Search for more papers by this author. Christine M. Bruhn.

Irradiation of meat, poultry, and other foods helps to preserve food quality and to prevent foodborne disease. This review examines current acceptance and use of irradiated foods in consumer food. Foods processed by novel and emerging technologies, e.g., biotechnology, ionizing radiation, pulsed electric field, ultra violet laser treatment, etc.

pose a serious challenge to factors such as consumer choice, purchasing behavior, and acceptance of irradiated by: Though the levels of consumer acceptance vary among countries, consumers in North America are rapidly increasing their acceptance of irradiated foods (19, 20).

Consumer Acceptance of Irradiated Meats By John Fox, Christine Bruhn, Stephen Sapp Evidence is reviewed from surveys and market studies about the degree of consumer acceptance of food irradiation and it is found that of the studies that provided information about irradiation, almost all provide only favorable by: Food irradiation (the application of ionizing radiation to food) is a technology that improves the safety and extends the shelf life of foods by reducing or eliminating microorganisms and insects.

Food irradiation is the process of exposing food and food packaging to ionizing ng radiation, such as from gamma rays, x-rays, or electron beams, is energy that can be transmitted without direct contact to the source of the energy capable of freeing electrons from their atomic bonds in the targeted radiation can be emitted by a radioactive substance or generated.

The purpose of this study was to examine consumer behavior and attitudes toward food irradiation in general, and in particular to explore consumers’ opinions of the believability and importance of a series of statements regarding food irradiation. This research provides strong evidence that consumers’ acceptance of food irradiation is.

This updated second edition of Food Irradiation Research and Technology reviews the latest developments in irradiation technologies as they are applied to meat, seafood fish, fruits, vegetables and nuts. Experts from industry, government, and academia define the basic principles and public health benefits of : $ Consumer Acceptance and Marketing of Irradiated Foods technology for this application has not commenced, probably because lettuce for the consumer market is packaged with small amounts of other vegetables, like carrots and cabbage (FDA ).

These items have not been approved by FDA at the dose used to destroy pathogens. Food Irradiation focuses on the fundamental aspects and applications of food irradiation.

It summarizes efforts to establish the wholesomeness of irradiated foods, and it discusses the nature of ionizing radiation, as well as its interaction with matter, the biological effects it induces in living organisms associated with food such as raw fruits and vegetables, and the application of these Book Edition: 1.
