The majority of consumers report making frequent use of nutritional labeling when purchasing food products. However, certain segments appear to place a greater emphasis on food product labels than others.

The results also indicate that larger households were less likely to use nutritional labeling.Food Consumption/Nutrition/Food Safety,
