About Functional Foods
Functional foods are foods and beverages with claimed health benefits based on scientific evidence. The field of functional foods is an emerging field in the food science industry and is composed of the foods that contain scientifically validated ingredients that provide a health benefit above the benefit of the food itself. The market is growing exponentially with a projected growth from $25 billion in 2006 to $39 billion by 2011.
