|Food preferences web questionnaire
This document details the rationale and procedure for administration of the Food Preferences questionnaire for UK Biobank. This questionnaire was developed to try to harmonise the various efforts conducted around the world to study food preferences. Items were chosen by consulting with scientist in the field from five different countries; the USA, the UK, Italy, the Netherlands and Australia in order to be able to choose a core set of items commonly found all over the world. The questionnaire was then re-visited, considering the specific diet and terminologies used in the UK. Efforts have been made to try to cover most food groups while retaining simplicity and ensuring the questionnaire remains acceptable to respondents in terms of length.
