    Growth in parts of the global functional foods market now appears to be slowing, due to factors such as the economic recession and the fact that various authorities have started to impose limits upon the health claims made by such food and drinks. Nevertheless, levels of new product activity remain reasonably high, and health trends observed throughout the developed world (such as rising obesity rates) suggest that the market potential for many types of functional foods remains positive.

    Future Directions for the Global Functional Foods Market updates Leatherhead’s ongoing research of the functional food market, and the 'Future Directions for Functional Foods' 2010 market report. This new report reviews sales of functional foods in the world’s key markets in areas such as anti-ageing and heart, gut and bone health, as well as discussing consumer attitudes. The report also discusses recent regulatory developments, industry structure and trends in new product activity.
