Abstract: One of the important issues related to food security in Indonesia (also global) is the dependency on rice based staple food. In fact, there are many resources that potentially be a staple food. Diversification yet achieved optimally. In previous studies shows that basically people have a positive attitude towards the alternative staple food. However, the intention to consume were low. Therefore, it is important to understand supporting and obstacle to behave consuming alternative staple food and chane the pattern of staple food consumption by reducing the rice based staple food which is replaced by alternative staple food. This research found 40 latent variables that support and 52 obstacle in changing the behavior of staple food consumption. By using factor analysis, 40 latent variables that support were reduced into three factors, those are the characters of alternative staple food, external motivation and knowlegde. Meanwhile, the 54 obstacles were reduced into four factors, those low image of alternative staple food, lack of information, hard to get and habit.
