C7. the Visually Simple = Healthy Intuition and Its Effects on Food Choices

This research proposes an outcome discounting relationship between visual simplicity of packages and food healthiness perception. Across three experiments, we find that consumers tend to perceive the food healthier when it is packed visually simple (vs. complex) and thereby more likely to choose the food.
