The primary role of diet is to provide sufficient nutrients to meet the nutritional requirements of an individual. There is now increasing scientific evidence to support the hypothesis that some foods and food components have beneficial physiological and psychological effects over and above the provision of the basic nutrients. Today, nutrition science has moved on from the classical concepts of avoiding nutrient deficiencies and basic nutritional adequacy to the concept of "positive" or "optimal" nutrition.

The concept of functional foods was first introduced in Japan in the mids when the Japanese government began funding research programs to study the ability of certain foods to influence physiological functions.
However, there is no clear definition for functional foods in the United States. Several prominent organizations have their own definitions Table 1. Although these organizations recognize that all foods are functional on some level as they provide energy and nutrients required to sustain life, they acknowledge that certain foods may provide positive health benefits beyond this, and may exert specific functional effects within the body e.
Although there is no clear or established definition of functional foods, conventional foods, modified foods, and food ingredients are the primary categories of functional foods that fall under existing definitions Table 2.
Foods are typically considered functional if they contain a bioactive component such as nutrients vitamins, minerals, protein, etc. Conventional foods are unmodified or whole foods that may be functional due to the bioactive compounds it contains. Definitions of categories of functional foods and examples are provided in Table 2. Depending on which definition of functional foods is being considered or followed, functional food definitions may also include nutraceuticals, dietary supplements, and medical foods.
Definitions for these terms also vary depending on the source. Dietary supplements may include whole foods or other plants such as herbs, food ingredients, nutraceuticals, extracts, etc.
The identification, development, and establishment of functional foods typically requires a foundational knowledge of food, nutritional, and biological sciences. The results of such studies are then used to support new hypotheses for human nutrition studies.
The results of human nutrition studies provide necessary information to determine whether more research and development is needed to enhance the function of the food or food component, to reduce disease risk, or improve disease management. All steps support the establishment of functional foods Figure 1. Following a healthy dietary pattern is important for maintaining optimal health and reducing chronic disease risk.
The inclusion of certain foods and food components with health benefits extending beyond meeting basic nutrition needs can provide further protection against chronic disease and condition development and may contribute to improved quality of life and longevity. Certain foods may be marketed for specific health effects, and may use health claims based on scientific evidence or without scientific basis.
For these reasons, it is important to understand what functional foods are, how they are established, what is required to use health claims, and which foods exert specific functional effects. Growing scientific evidence indicates that certain foods and food components i. The health effects rendered by functional foods are typically due to the bioactive compounds they contain.
Different compounds can exert specific effects in the body, but most often work together to alter one or more physiological process in the body. To achieve the health benefits of the diverse compounds that different foods contain, it is important to consume foods in their whole form when possible. For example, whole grains contain the bran, germ and endosperm of the grain. Whole grains contain dietary fiber, B vitamins including folate, niacin, thiamin and riboflavin, as well as trace minerals such as iron, magnesium, and zinc.
These particular nutrients are found in the outer layer of the grain or the bran that functions as a protective shell for the germ and endosperm inside. The germ contains phytochemicals such as polyphenols and lignans, vitamin E, and B vitamins. The endosperm provides carbohydrates, protein and energy. Several epidemiologic al studies have shown that a high intake of whole grains is associated with a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, stroke, obesity, and all-cause mortality.
Lower risk of cancer, particularly colorectal cancer, has also been reported. These effects have been attributed to combination of bioactive compounds that whole grain foods provide. It is thought that whole grain foods may lower cancer, heart disease and diabetes risk by reducing chronic inflammation and oxidative stress, preventing insulin resistance, reducing cholesterol levels, and improving gastrointestinal health. Overall, the evidence suggests that consumption of whole grains can enhance health and promote disease prevention by exerting effects beyond meeting basic nutrition needs and are therefore deemed to a functional food.
Additional examples of functional foods, their bioactive components, and associated health benefits are shown in Table 3. It is important to note that although the presence of bioactive compounds in foods is important, their digestion, absorption, and metabolism are also critical factors that influence their health effects.
Also, factors within the food production chain such as processing and distribution of foods can influence the content and types of bioactive compounds found in the foods when they are consumed. Table 3. As previously mentioned, the FDA does not provide a specific definition for functional foods, and thus a formal regulatory category and framework does not exist.
The only regulation for functional foods is related to its intended use, which is determined by the manufacturer and is often determined for marketing purposes.
Fortunately, current legislation in the United States is designed to protect consumers from misleading and false information that may appear on these food products. Functional foods can be categorized as either conventional foods, foods for special dietary use, food additives, dietary supplements, or medical foods — all of which are dependent on the intended use and type of claim made by the manufacturer.
The FDA regulates all claims associated with food products, including that found on the product label, website, or any other form of advertisement. There are four types of FDA-regulated claims that can be used on the labels of functional food products:.
It is therefore important to understand what these claims mean in order to make informed decisions about a food. Below are a few tips on how to evaluate claims about food products and determine if they are truthful and not misleading. A government-approved certifier must inspect the farm to ensure these standards are met. A product can only have the U. For example, organic sugar is still sugar. Incorporating functional foods into the diet can be easily achieved with a little thought and planning, and does not have to be expensive.
Including an abundance of plant foods as well as healthy protein and dairy foods in your diet is a sure way to increase your intake of functional foods.

A REVIEW DIFFERENT TYPES OF FUNCTIONAL FOODS AND THEIR HEALTH BENEFITS
Functional foods are foods with health benefits beyond the basic nutritional content. These foods include fruits, vegetables, many parts of plants and processed foods. Frequent consumption of functional foods is proven to improve health and prevent occurrence of diseases. Many scientific studies have shown that these antioxidants are able to scavenge free radicals and diminish oxidative stress, thus reducing the risk of several diseases.
Although currently a small scientific field, Functional Food Science is quickly expanding as studies show that functional food products can help manage chronic disease and promote overall wellness. The articles we publish include cutting-edge biomedical research and development of functional foods.

Собрав все силы, Хейл, сильнее обхватив Сьюзан за талию, начал пятясь подниматься по лестнице. Она пыталась цепляться каблуками за ступеньки, чтобы помешать ему, но все было бесполезно. Он был гораздо сильнее, и ему легче было бы подталкивать ее вверх, тем более что площадка подсвечивалась мерцанием мониторов в кабинете Стратмора. Но если она окажется впереди, он подставит Стратмору спину. Волоча Сьюзан за собой, он использовал ее как живой щит. Преодолев треть ступенек, он почувствовал какое-то движение у подножия лестницы.
Такси следовало за Беккером, с ревом сокращая скорость. Свернув, оно промчалось через ворота Санта-Крус, обломав в узком проезде боковое зеркало. Беккер знал, что он выиграл. Санта-Крус - самый старый район Севильи, где нет проездов между зданиями, лишь лабиринт узких ходов, восходящих еще к временам Древнего Рима. Протиснуться здесь могли в крайнем случае только пешеходы, проехал бы мопед.
- Она пробежала глазами таблицу. - Уран распадается на барий и криптон; плутоний ведет себя несколько. В уране девяносто два протона и сто сорок шесть нейтронов, но… - Нам нужна самоочевидная разница, - подсказала Мидж.
В целях безопасности каждый файл, загруженный в ТРАНСТЕКСТ, должен был пройти через устройство, именуемое Сквозь строй, - серию мощных межсетевых шлюзов, пакетных фильтров и антивирусных программ, которые проверяли вводимые файлы на предмет компьютерных вирусов и потенциально опасных подпрограмм. Файлы, содержащие программы, незнакомые устройству, немедленно отвергались. Их затем проверяли вручную. Иногда отвергались абсолютно безвредные файлы - на том основании, что они содержали программы, с которыми фильтры прежде не сталкивались.
Беккер посмотрел вниз, на свои ноги.
