While the induced knowledge and the trans fat manipulations had no direct effect on perceived importance, there were significant interactions between these factors (F's = 4.48 and 3.21 for the importance of trans fat and overall nutritiousness, respectively; p < .05 for each).
The plot of means for the importance of overall nutritiousness is shown in the bottom of Figure 2.
For example, belief measures about the nutritiousness of Jif, Lean Cuisine, and Campbell's declined when nutrition information was shown to consumers along with the health claim.

" (with endpoints of poor and good); "Overall, how would you rate the level of nutritiousness suggested by the information on the label?" (endpoints of "not nutritious at all" and "very nutritious"); and "In terms of overall level of nutrition, I think this product is ..." (endpoints of favorable and unfavorable which were reverse coded)).
Subjects' overall perceptions of the nutritiousness of the product were measured with the following item: "Overall, how would you rate the level of nutritiousness suggested by the information on the label?" Endpoints for this item were "not nutritious at all" (coded as '1') and "very nutritious" (coded as '7').
The F-values associated with the followup univariate tests show type of nutrition label manipulation had a significant effect on the perception of product nutritiousness (F = 6.2, p |is less than~ .01, ||Eta~.sup.2~ = .04) and product purchase likelihood (F = 3.6, p |is less than~ .05, ||Eta~.sup.2~ = .04) and a marginal effect on attitude toward nutrition content (F = 2.7, p |is less than~ .10, ||Eta~.sup.2~ = .02).
Specifically, the concern was whether changes in nutrition labels impact variables such as attitudes and perceptions of product nutritiousness and self-reported purchase likelihood.
