Meaningful Numbers: Consumer Response to Verbal Reaffirmation of Numerical Nutrition Information

The main goal of this research is to examine consumer response to front-of-package (FOP) nutrition labels where numerical nutrition information is unequivocally reaffirmed by a simpler cue. We contend that the verbal reaffirmation of numerical information assists consumers’ decision making. A field study and three experiments support this contention.
