Aim : To study the opinion of people with Crohn’s on bioactive food components, as well as knowledge on the products with bioactive components on the food market and market behaviour towards them.

Material and methods : The survey method with the application of a questionnaire was used. The investigations were conducted on a group of 140 people with Crohn’s disease and 200 healthy people, aged 20-70. Participants aged 20-45 constituted 50% of the population.

Results : Over 84% of people with Crohn’s disease, as well as healthy people, had heard of bioactive food components and knew how to define them properly. Twenty seven percent of people with Crohn’s disease, aged 46-70, agreed with the application of bioactive components in food production and 70% of young people were convinced of the need for the presence of such food on the market. Over 90% of the respondents with Crohn’s disease argued that food containing the components should be subjected to reliable tests and should be labelled with proper information. About 70% of the participants believed that food containing bioactive components was too expensive and they announced willingness to buy the products, provided they would become cheaper and possess traditional sensory characteristics.
