Genetically modified foods (GMFs) have been defined and emphasis has been given to legislation issues along with risk assessment. Moreover, consumer behavior has been discussed focussing on prevalent trends toward genetically modified (GM) foods in consumer behavior studies to date, attitudinal surveys, ‘willingness-to-pay’ studies, factors affecting GMF attitudes, and perceptual issues with GM food: risks and benefits. Finally, the role of ethics has been discussed along with food fears and the role of neophobia in shaping consumer attitudes.
