Summary
“The Future of Functional Food & Drinks - successful product positioning and claims” provides a comprehensive overview of the functional food and drink landscape, analyzing the regulatory and consumer drivers to identify the best opportunities and strategies. Innovation hubs are identified: Europe for regulation, Japan for product development, the US for consumer demand, and Brazil, India, and China for emerging markets. In addition, the report segments the functional food and drinks market by health claim and consumer age groups, and studies the future of four key trends in the market: probiotics, glucose control, performance muscle and prevention muscle, and cognitive performance in adults. Key ingredients are identified in each of these areas. Finally, the future of the functional food and drinks market is considered.

Key Findings
• As a result of stringent regulation, Europe has become the global hub for functional food and drinks clinical trials, while Japan remains by far and away the centre of functional innovation. But the largest number of functional food and drink consumers is in the US – especially as a market for lifestyle health products
• As the quality of clinical data supporting health claims improves, we expect to see deeper segmentation of target audiences for functional products. We also expect an ongoing tension in whether products are marketed as being more natural, or more ‘scientific’ or a hybrid
• We have identified four key trends in the evolving functional food and drink market: the future of probiotics and assessment of the clinical evidence in probiotics, the mainstreaming of glucose control, performance muscle and prevention muscle, and cognitive performance in adults
• Health is often not a prime consideration when consumers come to select what food and drink to consume; other motivations are more pressing, meaning consumers are likely to select an unhealthy product if it better meets their needs. Even where there is clear clinical evidence that a product or ingredient can improve health outcomes, the functional benefit may be better positioned as a solution for busy lives or changing lifestyles, or even just as expression of individualism.
