Food Label Halos and Consumer Perceptions of Food Healthfulness

This paper demonstrates that label halos bias dieters’ estimates about the healthfulness of vice foods containing such labels. Dieters tend to draw a directional conclusion about food healthfulness to mediate the guilt associated with consuming indulgent food. Providing corrective information to dieters can mitigate these effects.
