Does the Organic Label Increase Consumption? How Food Type and Health Locus of Control Turn the Label Into a Double-Edged Sword

This research examines whether the organic label on a food product always increases consumption of that product. Two moderators are considered: food type and consumer differences in health locus-of-control. Two experiments are conducted and results show that organic labels can be a double-edged sword in regards to food consumption.
