Updated Functional Foods Position Paper Published August 1

An updated position paper on the topic of functional foods is now available from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

All foods provide some level of physiological function. The term "functional foods" is defined as whole foods along with fortified, enriched or enhanced foods that have a potentially beneficial effect on health when consumed as part of a varied diet on a regular basis at effective levels based on significant standards of evidence.

The Academy supports Food and Drug Administration approved health claims on food labels when based on rigorous scientific substantiation. All food is essentially functional at some level as it provides energy and nutrients needed to sustain life. However, there is growing evidence that some food components, not considered nutrients in the traditional sense, may provide positive health benefits. Foods containing these food components are called functional foods.

Read the updated Functional Foods position paper published in the August 2013 Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
