Description:
A balanced and varied diet should provide sufficient nutrition for the average person and food, in all its forms, has traditionally been produced and marketed primarily for this purpose. However, an emerging category of food, termed “functional food” is routinely presented as possessing characteristics that can help achieve or maintain good health, in addition to providing basic nutrition. The delivery of health benefits through general foodstuffs is a relatively new concept within the EU, and though functional food is gaining in popularity with both the food industry and consumers alike, the legal status with respect to food law is not well documented. The information provided here is intended as a broad guide to functional food along with the relevant legislation regulating such food.
