Psychofood

As part of the funding of the Psychofood project by MSH Paris-Saclay, Antoine Nebout and Noémi Berlin of the Food and Social Sciences Unit (ALISS) are organizing an interdisciplinary workshop on the psychological determinants of food on 10 May 2019. This day will allow economists, epidemiologists and food psychologists to exchange views on food choice behaviour and the adoption of specific diets.

The Psychofood project is an interdisciplinary project aimed at studying the determinants of dietary behaviour in the French population.  The Psychofood questionnaire consists of a reduced food frequency questionnaire (adapted from the one developed by the CESP teams, INSERM) and a quantitative elicitation questionnaire of individual preferences with regard to risk and time. It was sent in June and July 2018 to a representative sample of the French population (N=2600) via tactile tablets as part of the ELIPSS panel (DIME SHS). This database is extremely rich in information to establish an inventory of French food consumption patterns and to study their socio-economic, demographic and psychological determinants.
 
At the end of the day, one will dispose of analysis keys offered by the invited professors for data exploitation. E. Duwez (Sciences Politiques) will present the ELIPSS panel and Antoine Nebout (INRA) will present the Psychofood project as well as the first results from the database exploitation.
