• We analyse the profile of consumers interested in nutrition or in health claims.
• The analysis is based on 240 face-to-face interviews and OLS estimations.
• Nutrition claims interest consumers focused on wellbeing and with high knowledge.
• Age, income and health conditions influence the interest for health-related claims.
This paper focuses on nutrition and health claims with the aim of verifying if these claims are of interest to different types of consumers, analysing the key variables that characterise their profiles. We performed a face-to-face survey on 240 consumers in charge of grocery shopping for their household in the Milan area (Italy). The analysis is based on two OLS estimation models. Our results suggest two different profiles for consumers interested in products presenting nutrition or health-related claims. Concerning nutrition claims, the analysis outlined a consumer profile particularly focused on household wellbeing. Females, family with young children, and consumers with a higher nutritional knowledge pay particular attention to such claims. Health-related claims, instead, seem to be of interest for those consumers that are older, with limited income, and with a health condition, namely, the most vulnerable segments of population.
