Maintaining sustainable food production and delivering high quality food products to prevent various diseases and offer health benefits are the biggest challenges in the food and beverages industry. Hence, the use of health promoting food ingredients is also growing across the globe. Manufacturers are also developing health promoting food ingredients using plants and other sources. Research activities on the health related dietary aspects have also shown a significant link between consumption of phytochemicals and prevention of lifestyle diseases. Various natural ingredients obtained from fruits and plants have also shown health benefits, reducing cardiovascular diseases and cancer risk.

The demand for functional foods has also increased in the recent years. Including beneficial ingredients and offering various health benefits is driving the growth of functional foods. Fruits and plants rich in vitamins and minerals are being used on a large scale by manufacturers to produce healthy ingredients for the food and beverages industry. Food and beverages companies are also looking forward to including bioactive ingredients in their food products. However, research is still being done to see the effectiveness and safety of these ingredients.
