Evaluation Mode Affects Choice of Healthy and Unhealthy Food: the Role of Taste and Healthiness Attribute Evaluability

In 5 studies, we show how joint evaluation improves consumers’ decision-making through increasing (decreasing) the choice share of healthy (unhealthy) food. When taste of the food is easier to evaluate than healthiness, consumers rely more on taste in separate evaluation, whereas they rely more on healthiness in joint evaluation mode.
