Overview
Future Directions for the Global Functional Foods Market

Growth within the global functional foods market has been hampered in recent years by the economic recession, which has caused many consumers to switch to cheaper groceries. The situation in Europe has not been helped by changes to the regulatory framework regarding health claims, which has increased the onus on manufacturers to provide more robust scientific research backing up the benefits offered by their products. Nevertheless, the global market continues to grow, with sales having increased in the US in particular of late. Much of this has been driven by more people seeking out functional foods to address nutritional deficiencies, in place of dietary supplements.
