Abstract

We estimate an almost ideal-demand system (AIDS) to assess the impacts of cholesterol information on the market demand of meats in the U.S. Our study indicates a significant negative impact of cholesterol information on the market demand of beef and pork and a significant positive influence on chicken demand. The study further demonstrated that the flow of carbohydrate information lessened the magnitude of cholesterol health information elasticities.
