Evaluation, choice, and purchase are actions that we perform daily. Seemingly, they are simple, but in reality, this is a complex behavior that is influenced by many factors. Each of these factors is related to different areas. Therefore, there is a need for more interdisciplinary research, reflecting the interaction between the various factors that determine consumer behavior toward foods.
