Despite numerous studies over the last decades, utilization of nutrition information is still poorly understood. Extant literature has focused on healthfulness assessments in relatively unambiguous comparative settings, such as comparing pasta and potato chips. We examine hard-to-judge situations (e.g., comparing two similar options) and the role of nutrition label format and thinking style therein. Recursive simultaneous bivariate probit modeling that considers the mediating role of extensive nutrition information consultation highlights a dialectic of numerical nutrition label presence as well as analytical thinking style in terms of information consultation and assessment quality.
