Today, the definition of health is no longer restricted to infirmity, but it includes physical as well as mental & psychological well-being. Any food that provides nutrients and has a physiological effect on the human body is called functional food. Functional food ingredients are those that are able to provide a certain distinctive performance benefit to a particular food product. Functional food comprises some bacterial strains and products of plants and animal origin containing physiologically active compounds beneficial for human health thereby reducing the risk of chronic diseases.

The increasing incidences of chronic diseases and the increasing number of research & development and innovation activities by the key players to expand the applicability and accelerate growth are driving the market for functional food ingredients.
