About Functional Drinks

Functional beverages are a segment of non-alcoholic beverages that contain vitamins, herbs, pre- and probiotic live bacteria and yeasts, non-digestible fiber, amino acids, or additional raw vegetables and fruits. Functional beverages also include RTD teas that have functional benefits, as well as non-dairy beverages that provide nutrition for lactose intolerant individuals or those who are looking to cut down on dairy fats.
These beverages are formulated to provide improved digestion, boost immunity, boost energy and stamina, promote health functions, and provide a feeling of satiation. The beverages also serve the needs of consumers who seek convenience and health benefits while on the go. These two aspects are important factors in product purchase decisions.
Functional beverages provide benefits of:
- Hydration
- Energy
- Health and wellness, including digestive and bone and joint health, and strengthening of the immune system
- Weight management
