Abstract :

Eating habits and patterns are influenced by various factors like environmental and psychological. This study focuses on the influence of Carnatic music on food choices and food intake and quantity. A self developed questionnaire was validated by a subject expert panel. The questionnaire was circulated to 100 individuals residing in Bangalore, 30 subjects were randomly chosen for the cross over study. The study was done in two phases– in complete silence (control) and in presence of Carnatic music (experiment). The findings from the study revealed that 46.6% of the study population made healthier choices and a greater food intake and duration (p=0.001) were observed in presence Carnatic music. It can be concluded that Carnatic music does have a role to play in one’s food and eating behaviours and patterns.
