Food Neophobia: Behavioral and Biological Influences brings together academic and applied studies to give a comprehensive overview of this topic in both sensory and consumer science and pediatric psychology. The effects of food neophobia can have a huge impact on children's lives and an influence across their lifespan. Split into two main sections, the book focuses on both the environmental and biological aspects of food neophobia. It covers social, contextual and psychosocial factors that affect food neophobia. Sensory aspects of food neophobia are covered with chapters on disgust and sensation seeking, and genetic and evolutionary influences are also thoroughly discussed.
The book is essential reading for academic researchers studying food neophobia from a sensory, consumer science and psychological perspective. It will also be of value to food product developers, especially those working on products for children.
