Functional foods are those considered as those whose purpose is to be consumed as a normal part of a diet but contain bioactive substances, in some cases their original composition has been modified to enhance their beneficial effects on health and reduce the risk of diseases. Nutraceuticals are concentrated pharmaceutical forms of bioactive foods and their purpose is to be consumed as supplements in the form of tablets, capsules, or liquid concentrates. Examples of functional foods are foods rich in omega-3s, phytosterols, beta carotenes, polyphenols, tannins, among others. Recently there has been a very special interest in the relationship between health and food, and today a marketing strategy to sell food is the impact it has on health. The proposal of the extension course is to cover the topics related to the regulation of functional and nutraceutical foods, as well as their development and the necessary and required tests to prove their efficacy, potency and safety.
