Food not only meets our energy needs, but also has a social function. It has strong impacts on perceptions of masculinity and femininity, conveys gender stereotypes, which will further influence our food choices. From the anthropological perspective, this paper makes a cultural description of food and its gender significance, and analyzes the deep logic behind it by analyzing the gender differences in human eating activities. These gender stereotypes may have a huge impact on food selection and design based on gender roles in the food industry, so as to withdraw from more targeted design of food favored by consumers in the future.
