Nutraceuticals

The term nutraceutical was coined in the 1990’s by Dr. Stephen DeFelice. He defined nutraceutical as “any substance that is a food or a part of a food and provides medical or health benefits, including the prevention and treatment of disease. Such products may range from isolated nutrients, dietary supplements and specific diets to genetically designer foods, herbal products, and processed foods such as cereals, soups and beverages.” Health Canada defines nutraceuticals as “a product isolated or purified from foods, and generally sold in medicinal forms not usually associated with food and demonstrated to have a physiological benefit or provide protection against chronic disease.”
