The idea that certain foods may be eaten to maintain a healthy body is certainly not new, but the last ten years have witnessed the evolution of a multibillion-dollar market around this concept. The global introduction of nutraceuticals has seen the creation of a tertiary definition of food, one that moves beyond the notions of taste and nutrition, and into physiological function. Food may be used not only to sustain life but also to enhance it.

The global market for nutraceuticals is currently estimated to be worth about US$65 million. The differences in national demand are extensive however, even between the leading markets: North America, the EU (in particular the UK) and Japan.

Much of this difference can be attributed to an individual country’s cultural history of the role of food, or with the levels of consumer education, or simply the relative affluence needed to afford the ‘good-for-you’ price premium. Each and every market is experiencing growth however. And, on a global scale, this growth is expected to continue at around 9% until 2010.
