dc.description.abstractNowadays, with the development of food industry, people seem to consume foods without being aware of their ingredients. Our study aims to evaluate the degree of reading nutrition labels and the level of knowledge about the halal food by taking students of one university in Konya into consideration. The sample consisted of foreign students studying at a university in Konya and the survey was conducted to determine the knowledge level of these students. The study was based on volunteerism and the data were analyzed with the SPSS 23.0 package program. The Chi-Square significance test (X2) was used in the assessment. %53.6 of students in our research are male, and %46.4 of them are female. The average age of the sample is 21. In addition, %41.07 of the participants have been studying in health-related departments. %12.5 of the research sample stated that they do not look at the food label when they buy food for the first time. %65,2 of the people declaring that they pay attention to the food label stated that they look at the list of contents mostly. In the question about which sections are examined in the nutritional value panel, %65.3 of students expressed that they look at protein value when they see the panel. %64.3 of the sample think that the 'plenty of fibrous and fat-free' health warnings on the front side of the food package are not correct. When asked whether the table of nutritional value is comprehensible, half of the participants stated that it is not comprehensible for them. When the knowledge level about halal food is evaluated, %94.6 of the students know what halal food means and %75.4 of them have information about the contents of halal foods according to our results. Those who are unsure about whether consumption of beverages such as kefir containing ethanol via natural fermentation is halal or not have composed %60.7 of our sample. According to our research, the majority of the sample are conscious in term of reading nutritional labels and halal food. However, it was observed that there is inadequate information about some food groups frequently consumed in the daily diet.en_US
