Functional foods are products or ingredients that have a positive impact on human health in addition to its’ nutritional value.

Functional nutrition implies consuming products that increase human’s organism resistance to diseases and improves physiological processes which help to maintain an active lifestyle for long.

Functional food products include products with predetermined qualities depending on the goals of its’ use. Considering the technological particularity of functional food products qualities, three main categories of functional food products may be highlighted:

— traditional products originally containing a big number of physiologically functional ingredients or groups of ingredients

— products in which content of health harmful components that hinder the development of biological and physiological activity or bioavailability of functional ingredients contained in the product has been technologically lowered

— traditional products additionally enriched with functional ingredients using technological methods.

Safety and standards compliance are the characteristics required for modern food. Use of qualitative ingredients is one of the main factors that help to keep up with these requirements. Especially when functional and health foods are concerned.
