Abstract: Introducing and increasing the use of insect-based foods as an alternative source of protein has recently aroused academic and commercial interest in Europe.

The data was obtained by using an online questionnaire and convenience sampling. For measuring TPB-components a self-administered 58-item Likert-type questionnaire was used. Food neophobia (FN) was measured by using the food neophobia scale. Respondents' (n=564) intentions to consume insect-based foods were explained significantly (80%) by their A (beta=0.749, P
