Learning Goal: I’m working on a health & medical case study and need support to help me learn.What are Functional Foods?Functional foods are foods that have a potentially positive effect on health beyond basic nutrition. For example, foods that claim to give you energy, help you lose weight, improve skin and hair, increase muscles, improve the immune system, slow the aging process, and improve bone health. These foods are often high in probiotics, phytochemicals, antioxidants, and foods that are high in fiber. A familiar example of functional food is oatmeal because it contains soluble fiber that can help lower cholesterol levels. Some foods are modified to have health benefits (cereal, eggs, juice). An example is orange juice that has been fortified with calcium for bone health.Proponents of functional foods say they promote optimal health and help reduce the risk of disease. The Food and Drug Administration regulates the claims that manufacturers can make about functional foods’ nutrient content and effects on disease, health, or body function. If you want to try functional foods, choose wisely. And keep in mind that while functional foods may help promote wellness, they can’t make up for poor eating habits.Assignment1.The student will select one Functional Food to evaluate.
