UK Biobank is inviting participants to provide information about their food preferences. The questionnaire is currently being distributed by email but can also be accessed by logging onto the participant section of the website.
An individual’s food preferences (i.e. what they like to eat) is the most important factor when choosing what they select to eat. Knowledge about which foods you like or do not like will help us understand what biological and environmental factors influence food preferences and how they are associated with health. This will inform the design of new approaches which help people lead healthier lives.
UK Biobank provides a unique opportunity to better understand food preferences. Adding these data to all the other health and lifestyle information participants have so kindly provided to us over the past 10 years or so will make the UK Biobank resource even more useful for research and help gain a deeper understanding of food choice and eating behaviours.
As always, the responses to this email questionnaire are confidential and will only be used for research which does not identify you.
You can complete this questionnaire on a PC or a mobile device, whatever is easiest for you. If you have questions, or need help, please call our Participant Resource Centre on 0800 0 276 276 free of charge, Monday to Friday 8am to 6pm and 8am-4pm Saturday, or send us an email.
You can update your contact details or log on to the questionnaire from our secure participants’ page.
