People's food choices can carry a great deal of meaning, and convey information about their beliefs, values, and worldview. We developed the Meaning of Food in Life Questionnaire (MFLQ; Arbit, Ruby, & Rozin, 2015) to measure the extent to which people's food choices reflect Moral, Social, Health, Aesthetic, and Sacred meanings. The original three studies established the factor structure of these five different domains among samples of US-American adults, and investigated how these different domains relate to people's food choice motivations and dietary intake. This talk will briefly summarise the development of the MFLQ, and present two additional studies conducted across a broad array of 11 countries (Australia, Brazil, China, France, Germany, Ghana, India, Japan, Mexico, Turkey, USA), which examine the structure of the MFLQ and how it relates to variables such as dietary self-efficacy, dietary status (e.g., omnivore, vegetarian, vegan), and locality (i.e., rural or urban).
