A health food is defined as any product that is derived from food sources that has additional health benefits including the prevention or treatment of diseases. The global health food market, by product type, can be segmented into several categories like health supplements, dietary supplements or food supplements/nutraceuticals, health functional foods, health functional beverages, food for special dietary uses, novel foods, etc.

Despite being on a growth curve, the health food market faces numerous challenges globally in terms of increasing regulations and complicated testing regimes. Right from the categorization of food supplements/nutraceuticals, dietary supplements, functional foods and foods for special dietary use to a variety of laws, health foods are being treated and governed differently from region to region. Apart from understanding these legislative requirements, implementing the Regulatory best practices may also pose a challenge for manufacturers globally.
