Functional Food

Inulin shortbread biscuit

What is “Functional Food”?

According to the Commission’s Concerted Action on Functional Food Science in Europe (FUFOSE), a functional food is “a food that
beneficially affects one or more functions in the body, beyond the nutritional effects, that is relevant to either an improved state of health and well-being and/or reduction of risk of disease. It is consumed as part of a normal food pattern. It is not a pill, a capsule or any form of dietary supplement”. (ilsi.eu)

It is preferable to have a diet that is functional overall, rather than having a “poor” diet, enriched by one or two functional artificial products. (fondazioneveronesi.it) A diet, which is more “natural” than “functional”, must always be accompanied by physical activity and weight control which are the real protective factors of our health.
(fondazioneveronesi.it)

Driven by these 3 concepts and with the aid of specialist legal assistance, we have produced 2 types of functional biscuits adding the precise quantity of chicory inulin which, according to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), “contributes to normal bowel functions” with the consequent beneficial effects on the body.

Given the trust in such experience and the success achieved by these initial products, the company intends to pursue the production of functional health foods, through constant research in the best raw materials that can be added to our products with the purpose of guaranteeing efficiency of their beneficial properties.
