The Food Acceptability Questionnaire (FAQ) is a self-report measure of palatability, ease of preparation, satisfaction, and perceived benefits and adverse effects related to a prescribed or self-selected diet. This study intends to develop a reliable and valid food acceptability questionnaire for use in clinical studies in which dietary interventions are administered.
Condition or disease
Two hundred adult participants who follow a therapeutic diet will be recruited from the Washington DC area. Participants will be asked to rate their impression on the foods that they were eating in the past two weeks. Fifty participants will be chosen at random and asked to complete the questionnaire a second time, three weeks later, to assess reliability. Ratings will be used to assess the validity and reliability of the Food Acceptability Questionnaire (FAQ).
