With health and wellness a top criterion driving consumer food choices, this first-edition Packaged Facts report offers a unique perspective on a hot topic, examining pharmaceutical-benefit foods (i.e., “phoods”) and beverages including traditional (e.g., regular oatmeal, whole-grain breads), fortified (e.g., orange juice with calcium), and “designer” (e.g., protein bars, smart spreads) products. The combination of more permissible FDA-approved health claims on food packages, media attention to the link between diet and health, and new product/ingredient/technological development is spurring rapid growth in this market, which encompasses products fortified with glucosamine and/or calcium to promote joint and bone health, those containing omega-3 fatty acids and/or plant sterol/stanol esters for heart health and other benefits, soy protein-enhanced foods, and “vitamin waters” and other functional beverages—among many others. Also covered are products enhanced with cutting-edge ingredients and nutrients, such as lutein for eye health, glucosamine for joint health, or probiotics/prebiotics to strengthen the immune system; as well as certain “inherently healthy” products, such as whole-grain/functional cereals and wellness teas.
