Description

This paper explores trust and distrust in relation to food risks and the chemical substances present in food among pregnant and breastfeeding women in four different regions of Spain in order to analyze how mothers incorporate different social meanings and to know the most important categories they use when talking about risk in relation to food. Through a study based on an analysis of cultural domains, we examine their socio-cultural representations related to health and diet in order to understand how these mothers incorporate different social meanings and explore the most important categories they use when talking about trust/distrust in relation to food. We analyze shared knowledge about food risk of these women, where the main shared elements regarding food risk among these mothers permit us to take a look at a shared perspective constructed by the participating mothers. Trust/distrust often depends on the qualities they attribute to the product. The pregnant and breastfeeding women who participated in the study talk about food and reliability based on the specific properties they perceive them about food and also on other characteristics related to their origin, their handling, processing and distribution.
