Functional ingredients are bioactive compounds used for delivering various health benefits. They include nutritionally fortified components that are added to food and beverages to improve energy levels, digestion, concentration, memory and vision. Some of the commonly used functional ingredients include proteins, vitamins, probiotics, prebiotics, omega-3 and hydrocolloids. They are added to milk, bread, pasta, cereal, granola, cheeses, yoghurt, tea and coffee.
