What is Functional Food? Why is it important?
Functional Foods are those that do more than mere nutrition. They aid in the treatment or prevention of disease. The bad news: over one third of Americans suffer from chronic disease which is caused by food. The great news: 80% of those people can treat or prevent those diseases by Functional Food. Type II Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Obesity, Arthritis, and certain Cancers fall into this category.
Functional Food is Nutritious, Delicious, Affordable. The idea that good food is tasteless, boring, homogeneous or expensive is untrue.
