Abstract:

The study is the first in a series of small sample studies on individual food habits. Food preference and food choice were examined in detail for 10 Navy enlisted men. Results showed that while individuals are rather similar in the consistency of their responses to foods overall, they are somewhat different when their responses to foods within a given food class are considered. This was true with respect to the reliability of the hedonic and frequency scales, the degree of association between the hedonic and frequency scales, and the degree of association between these preference scales and food choice.
