The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Nathan Pratt, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
  Purpose
The objective of the study is to validate a visual method of presenting nutritional information by determining if users of the visual method remember food properties better than users given the same information in a non-visual form with texts and tables.

Condition Intervention
Healthy Behavioral: Visual nutrient profiling tool Behavioral: Nutrient ratings table

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Health Services Research

Further study details as provided by Nathan Pratt, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of correct responses for fiber and protein ratings of foods [ Time Frame: 10 minutes after presentation of nutrition information ]
    Fiber and protein ratings (5 possible) for 30 foods must be recalled after being presented in a visual or tabular format. Distraction period occurred between presentation of information and recall (maze).


Enrollment: 63
Study Start Date: July 2011
Study Completion Date: July 2011
Primary Completion Date: July 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
