NCT01486147
First received: December 1, 2011
Last updated: December 5, 2011
Last verified: December 2011
  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: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Health Services Research

Further study details as provided by 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 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    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).
