What is a functional food?

Functional foods have evolved in the consumer’s understating of its meaning since their contemporary use was first introduced in the early 1990s. Prior to that, consumers have enjoyed foods that have been “functionalized,” but generally have not recognized them as so. For example, about six decades ago vitamin D was added to milk products and more recently calcium and omega 3s have been added to orange juice products, which now effectively make them functional foods. FoodPharma is producing functional soft chews, nutrition bars, energy bars and panned products, creating a new and more desirable category of nutritious foods as an alternative to the use of tablets and capsules.
