Summary

Food preference tests represent an approach in food quality research, taking advantage of the instinctive feeding behavior of animals by allowing them to choose between food
samples. A great number of investigations using laboratory mice/rats concerning essential and/or dangerous contents are based on this method and have shown its effectiveness. The selection of food is influenced to some degree by smell and taste, but mostly by wholesomeness and need. The objective of the present study was to investigate the food preference of carrots from different cultivation systems.
