Nutraceuticals Revolutions

The nutraceutical revolution will lead us into a new era of medicine and health, in which the food industry will become a research-oriented one similar to the pharmaceutical industry. It is interesting to note that the US food industry presently spends less than 0.5% of gross sales on R&D, whereas the pharmaceutical industry spends well over 10%.

The nutraceutical revolution began in the early 1980s, sparked off when the actual or potential clinical benefits of calcium, fiber and fish oil were supported by clinical studies published in distinguished medical journals, and when physicians began to educate their colleagues and consumers about these substances via the mass media.
