Functional foods can be understood as an
aliment that can provide health benefits beyond
basic nutrition due to their active compounds.
The need for these types of products has become a significant trend where greater health and lifestyle consciousness brings a shift in the sophistication of the products on offer (Eromonitor, 2006).
The Health and wellness packaged food category grew 14.26% in 2020, reflecting how vital nutrition is for the global consumer (passport, 2021).
In the UK Functional claims are performing better than any other category of claims, being the fastest-growing category in terms of new chocolate launches, where its share has grown 276.4% in 2021 compared to last year (Mintel, 2021).
