What Are Functional Ingredients?

Have you heard about functional foods?

These provide additional health benefits beyond basic nutrition. Many foods naturally contain these additional health benefits — think fermented foods like kefir or sauerkraut that contain probiotics. Or berries that are high in antioxidants. Including functional foods as part of your daily food choices is an excellent strategy to improve overall health.
