Ultra-processed food and unprocessed/minimally processed food emotional responses dataset
Dataset of Brazilian participants (University students). Participants (n= 174; 144 women; mean age = 20.7 years; standard deviation = 4.35) performed two tasks. In the first task, 16 pictures of foods (8 UPF and 8 UMPF), and 74 pictures from other affective categories (from the International Affective Pictures System, IAPS; Lang, Bradley & Cuthbert, 2008), were presented. After viewing each picture, the participants rated it along two basic dimensions of emotion through the Self-Assessment Manikin scale: pleasantness and arousal. In the second task, the participants viewed the same food pictures, and they rated their intention to consume the foods depicted in the pictures. The dataset contains: 1) Table 1 with information about the level of emotional evocativeness of each picture (food pictures and pictures from IAPS). 2) Table 2 with information about the affective ratings per participant. 3) Table 3 with information about the intention to consume ratings per participant.
