The nutraceutical industry has evolved significantly over the past two decades. Encompassing three main segments – dietary supplements, functional foods and herbal or natural products; the industry has been an interesting amalgamation of scientific principles and growing interest of consumers in health enhancing foods. We have also witnessed an increasing demand of various fortified foods in diverse categories ranging from dairy products to bakery and confectionery, snacks, cereals, baby food and many more. Over a period of time, the research and development teams have also discovered novel nutraceuticals and fine-tuned processing technologies.
The rapid growth of the industry is primarily attributed to rise in number of health conscious consumers, who look for specific ingredients in the products they consume. In wake of Covid-19 pandemic, the industry has seen a further boost due to intensified focus of people on preventive health measures.
However, changing regulatory environment, coupled with consumers demand for quality and safety have laid increasing emphasis on verification of health claims of products and its regulatory compliance.
