The term “functional food” is rising in popularity, and there is increased consumer interest in better nutrition and improving overall health.  However, as we have seen with other popular industry terms, there is no consensus definition for a “functional food” and consumer confusion abounds.  During this webinar, speakers will discuss the history of foods that promise benefits in addition to nutrition, including health inequalities for access to good nutrition, challenges companies face in communicating the added benefits of their products, and how FDA and FTC does and should regulate functional foods and nutrition-based claims.
