The questionnaire consists of (a) questions with personal data; questions referred to the importance of individual factors for consumers’ food choice, related to: (b) fundamental knowledge on food quality and food additives; (c) nutrition and desire to consume food that contains additives; (d) knowl- edge on monosodium glutamate and desire to consume food containing monosodium glutamate.

Results.Results indicated a statistically significant difference between A-group and B-group, and between female and male subjects, on fundamental knowledge on food quality and additives, but there was no differ- ence in habits regarding nutrition and desire to consume food that contains additives. Respondents in A-group significantly more avoid products containing monosodium glutamate comparing to B-group, but there was no difference between female and male subjects preference.
