The study of cognitive dissonance applied to food and nutrition has been relatively under-developed. A review of food and food-related research that has utilised cognitive dissonance as a primary construct in a priori theorization and hypothesis-formulation was conducted.The ways in which the dissonance construct has been used was examined, together with its corresponding effects on various food-related outcomes in those studies. Apart from bringing some semblance of structure and organisation to existing studies, critical issues underlying cognitive dissonance applied in food research are also identified and discussed.
