The aim of the present work was to assess consumers' willingness to pay for reformulated frankfurters in the context of the implementation of nutritional warnings. Images of frankfurter packages were designed using a fractional factorial design with 5 2-level variables: brand type, sodium reduction, saturated fat reduction, fibre claim and cholesterol claim. An online study with 548 consumers was implemented with Chilean participants, who were asked to indicate how much they would be willing to pay for each of the packages. Data were analysed using analysis of variance and hierarchical cluster analysis. Willingness to pay was significantly affected by brand type and sodium and fat reduction, whereas fibre and cholesterol claim did not have a significant effect. These results suggest that in the context of the implementation of nutritional warnings reformulation of processed meat products should focus on the reduction of key nutrients, although consumers may not be willing to pay a higher price for reformulated products.

OBJECTIVE: To determine the prevalence of metabolic syndrome in health employees of a general hospital in Celaya, Guanajuato. DESIGN: Cross-sectional survey to 200 healthy employees who were selected by labor category: nurses 71 (35 %), general services 66 (33 %), administrative 39 (19.5 %), physicians 12 (6 %) and chiefs of clinical department 12 (6 %). The instrument was used to detect risk factors, evaluate clinically and through laboratory tests. The diagnosis of metabolic syndrome was done by following the NCEP-ATPIII criteria. A descriptive analysis was carried out. RESULTS: The study included 142 women (71 %) and 58 men (29 %) with an average age of 41 years (range 19 to 59). The global prevalence of MS was 29.5 % (59 events). Six new cases of type 2 diabetes mellitus (3 %), 38 with abnormal fasting glucose (19 %) and 33 with abnormal blood pressure (16.5 %): 23 participants with pre-hypertension, 7 in stage 1 and 3 in stage 2 were detected. Ten employees with MS (21%) tested positive for C-reactive protein. CONCLUSION: The prevalence of MS of health employees is above figures reported in the literature for the general population.
