Functional foods and beverages in the United Arab Emirates: A74-3/74-2017E-PDF

"Fortified/functional (FF) foods and beverages are products that contain added ingredients which are perceived to have a positive effect on health, beyond basic nutrition. These types of products are gaining popularity in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) as consumers with busy lifestyles try to adopt healthier eating habits by focussing on nutrients rather than on decreasing calorie intake. Additionally, food processors are keen to support this trend seeing as products categorised as “value-added” are exempt from the country’s strict government-enforced price caps on staple foods, and can therefore be sold at a higher cost, thus increasing profits. The sub-categories within FF packaged food that this report will focus on include dairy, baby food, and breakfast cereals. Those within FF beverages include energy drinks, concentrates, and hot drinks"--Introd., p. 2.
