9-Bb: When Innovation Collides With Nature: Mere Consideration of Novel Food Products Can Decrease Evaluations of the Entire Product Category

We show that exposure to novel products entailing an inherent trade-off between healthiness and naturalness can lead to ambivalent evaluations. In turn, such evaluations may spill over from single product exemplars and negatively affect evaluations and willingness to try the entire product category. This negative impact on ambivalence was not invariant, but a function of (higher) levels of preference for predictability.
