    A sample of 9339 subjects aged 13-75, living in the six macro-regions of Poland rated the preferences of 140 various food products, eating frequency and factors influencing food choice. Four groups of consumers were found: "consumers susceptible to advertising and seeking novel healthy products" (33.2% of the sample), "consumers not taking care of their health" (25.4%), "consumers not susceptible to advertising and taking care of their health" (32.5%), and "consumers insensitive to sensory attributes of fruit and vegetables" (9.0%). Among factors influencing the food choice, sensory and functional factors were significant, and health and price - moderate. Advertising was generally denied as an important factor in food choice. The food choice motives were highly dependent on age and gender, and to a lower extent - on region of residence, size of place of residence, economic condition and education level. Women/girls more often showed pro-health behaviours in food choice, choice motives, preferences and food intake.
