The purpose of the study was to determine if student participants can accurately choose the most nutritious canned food product when given specific brand choices with similar food label. Results showed a statistically significant difference in mean percent correct score in canned fruits compared to canned vegetables. Mean percent correct score for canned fruits was significantly higher among participants with annual income greater than $10,001. Mean percent correct score for canned vegetables was significantly higher among non-health related majors than health related majors. Further research is recommended to show trends in accuracy of choice of nutritious canned foods among college students.
