During the Great War consumers emerged as a new demanding group within European society. Their demands for fairer prices almost always emerged in connection with the need for broader reform of both the state and the economy. This article analyzes the main measures that Portugal implemented during World War I in the field of nutrition, focusing on the extent and limits of the “politicization” of consumption and noting the impact of the disruptions brought about by the lack of foodstuffs.
