Through a case study approach, this subject introduces a selection of mechanisms through which fresh and manufactured foods can promote specific health and wellbeing outcomes for different demographic groups. The requirements of trials to generate efficacy data are considered, alongside market trends and the regulatory environment. Processes through which functional foods or nutraceuticals can be manufactured to optimise bioactivity are reviewed. Building on this knowledge platform, students undertake an individual literature-based research investigation of a functional food of their choice.
