Abstract:This study examines the relationship between the amount of information a respondent gets and his perception of nanotechnology in the context of food products. The respondents (N = 114) were assigned to three conditions. In each condition the respondents got three informational texts. Each group received the same texts but in a different order for reason of randomization. They were controlled for comparability so that it could be assured that the amount of information was the independent variable. Three measures of constructs of perception were executed: Before reading a text, after reading one and after reading all three texts. The results indicated that the respondents had a more negative perception the more information they got and that the first information the respondents got had the most impact on the perception.
