Abstract

Food neophobia influences our willingness to try new foods and thereby how we accept new foods into our diet. Once the threshold of trying a food has been crossed, other mechanisms such as exposure, liking for the food, possible physiological effects, convenience and so on, can influence the further use of the food. Therefore food neophobia can act as an internal gatekeeper in our diet.
