The increasing concern in relation to safety and hygiene of food consumption makes it so that food conservation is studied. Food radiation is a technique used for conservation, but many consumers associate this technique with dangers such as environmental contamination and development of diseases. This research had the objective of evaluating the acceptance of irradiated products by the consumer market in the city of Piracicaba/SP-Brasil. The methodology adopted was the application of a questionnaire in the city's supermarkets. After the application, the data was tabulated and analyzed. It was observed that the majority of interviewees wouldn't eat irradiated food. The unfamiliarity and questions about the safety of irradiated food were the main causes of rejection of irradiated food. © 2017.
