Functional foods

Functional foods can be considered to be those whole, fortified, enriched or enhanced foods that give health benefits beyond the provision of essential nutrients(e.g., vitamins and minerals), when they're consumed at efficient levels as part of a varied diet on a regular base. Functional components include phytochemicals which are plant- deduced, on-nutritive and biologically active chemicals that function in the body to help the onset of certain on-communicable conditions (Murano 2003). There are over 900 phytochemicals set up in foods.
