Are You A Foodie?

posted by Suzanne And Greg In The Morning - 

Are you someone who considers yourself a foodie? Well, apparently it takes more than just liking good food, and taking pictures of it to qualify as one. The International Food Information Council (IFIC) Foundation's 2017 Food and Health Survey has uncovered the many qualities and attributes that most foodies have and some of them may surprise you.

First off, the survey finds that a foodie is willing to give up convenience and cost if it means getting a good quality product, especially if it’s tasty and healthy, and prepared in a way that abides by their personal beliefs. And for foodies, for a product to be considered healthy it must have three attributes, it must be “minimally processed,” "free from artificial ingredients, additives" and "high in healthy components or nutrients." 

Foodies are also very well informed about the nutrients in food. According to the survey, only 44% of most people can name a food or nutrient linked to a desired health benefit, while 60% of foodies were able to do so.

As for the demographics, the survey finds that most foodies are female (63% vs. 37% male). They also have higher incomes, with 52% of them making more than $75K a year, are a median age of 58, and are less likely to have kids under the age of 18.
