What are functional foods?

The Mayo Clinic defines functional food as food that potentially has an added benefit beyond basic nutrition. An example of a functional food is sardines, which provide nourishment but also are rich in omega-3 fatty acids which could help prevent heart disease. Functional foods also include dietary supplements such as vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber. Between 2015 and 2024, global sales of vitamins are expected to nearly double.
