Why red? Studies show Alzheimer patients increase food intake by 24% and liquid by 84% due to red color.

People who have Alzheimer’s disease experience impairments not only in their cognitive abilities but also in their physiological status. Approximately 40% of Alzheimer’s patients experience significant weight loss. This weight loss may be due to many different factors but a study out of Boston University suggests that significant weight loss is due in part to the loss of the ability to distinguish contrast between colors.

People with Alzheimer's are not able to distinguish light colored food and drink on or in typically light colored tableware. When using tableware that offered a high contrast to the food and drink (i.e.: bright red and bright blue), researchers noticed that the participants in the study increased their food intake by 24% and liquid intake by 84%.
