The Allure of RedSpeaking somewhat physiologically and psychologically, yellow is apparently the most significant colour that makes people want to eat (so a definite bad idea for the kitchen), however probably because we often associate red with feelings and emotions tied in with love, passion etc. Therefore people see it, it's a warm colour, we feel that instant comfort and security etc. Hope that starts you off. Satisfies our primal instinctsNot sure if there is any scientific data, but most humans eat meat and red is a strong indicator of the quality of meat and freshness. Visually speaking, it could mean life or death for the person that chooses to eat that particular piece of meat. People that chose to eat other colors of meat probably died out. So evolutionary tendencies have some impact on peoples desires. The food industry plays heavily on this natural tendency. Hence the popularity of ketchup and Pizza - where red is the primary color. I'm sure there is many other examples of this.

It is appealing

Red is an appealing colour. It is eyecatching, and possibly makes you think of apples. Does some muddy brown colour make you want to eat? No, probably not. Red is much nicer, and generally not associated with something gross.

Try it out!

Have you tried eating blue colored rice? I did, and my appetite just vanished completely. I couldn't! Same with a blue cake. I baked it for class, but no one ate it. When you try this, make red and yellow colored rice too.

The color red is associated with emotion and passion. So when one sees red combined with yellow and orange, they become passionately hungry. Green and earthy tones for usually used for eco-friendliness, natural, organic, healthy food choices. For those who are conscious about healthy eating, these colors are appealing.
