Development of a reliable and construct valid measure of nutritional literacy in adults

Nutrition Journal 2007, 6:5  doi:10.1186/1475-2891-6-5

PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

Is the instrument available?

I found this article interesting and a potentially valuable contribution to the field of Health Literacy. However, I was disappointed that the instrument was not included in the article. It is very difficult to understand the strengths and weaknesses of a survey instrument that you can't look at. Is the instrument available?

Thank you for your good work!
