Full4Health standardised food images available for research use

As part of the Full4Health project, the Utrecht team has produced a collection of high quality standardised food images to minimise the variability that can occur between studies.

Full4Health partner, Paul Smeets and his research team at the Nutritional Neuroscience lab in Utrecht, The Netherlands (UMCU), are investigating the neural correlates of taste, satiety and (unhealthy) food choice, gut-brain interactions, effects of personality characteristics on food-induced brain responses and functional neuroimaging in anorexia nervosa.

Dietary choices are influenced by the sight of food so food images are a convenient visual tool for assessing this in research.  However, there is considerable variability in the images used in food studies, which hinders comparison and meta-analysis of different studies.  As part of the Full4Health project, the Utrecht team has produced a collection of high quality standardised food images, which have been made freely available for other researchers to use.  If widely adopted, their use may help to eliminate the variability that can arise in studies on food choices.
