Abstract

This study investigated whether Jordanians care about eating healthy food. To achieve the objective of the study, a questionnaire was distributed to 300 persons. Chi-square test and t-test were used for analysis. Based on the answers of 261 respondents, we found that Jordanians in general do show a statistically significant care about how healthy is their food. In specific, the results indicated that Jordanians concern about eating fruits and vegetables, the amount of fat, added sugar and calories in their food in a statistically significant manner. On the other hand, the results showed that Jordanians do not show a statistically significant concern about the amounts of preservatives and colorings added to their food and whether it is natural or manufactured or plant or animal sourced.
