2022 Food and Health Survey

2022 Food and Health Survey

The 2022 Food and Health Survey marks the 17th time the International Food Information Council (IFIC) has surveyed Americans to understand their perceptions, beliefs, and behaviors surrounding food and food-purchasing decisions. This year’s survey continues an examination of issues related to personal health, nutrition, eating patterns, food production, and food safety. Among many highlights, this year’s survey findings include:

  • A sharp uptick in prioritization of environmental sustainability
  • Approaches to managing prominent issues like chronic stress and the rising cost of food
  • An increase in the adoption of new diets and eating patterns
  • Insights about the influence of allergen labeling on food purchases

In addition, for the first time, the 2022 Food and Health Survey reports on the viewpoints and food-purchasing behaviors of Gen Z, providing a full picture of how our youngest adults are shaping national conversations about food and health.
