Japan is the birthplace of the functional ingredients industry, with its long tradition of enhancing food products to promote good health. This budding market continues to grow rapidly, and key players from around the world are coming to Health Ingredients (Hi) Japan to witness the ongoing evolution of the functional ingredients industry.
In an aging population, people are now giving more attention to health-related food, such as functional food and nutraceuticals. Today, 60% of the Japanese people use health supplements, with 60% of those who take them satisfied with the effectiveness.
The new Japanese health claim regulation “Foods with Function Claims” (FFC) started in 2015, and this is expected to have a significant economic impact on the Japanese health-related market. More than 3,400 products have been accepted for the new claims, as of November 2020, including Roquette’s Maltitol new FFC claim.
Functional food, supplement and nutraceutical market in Japan is expected to grow even more dramatically in the coming years. To develop those products, finding functional ingredients and valuable applications is a big theme in the food industry, nutraceutical industry and even pharmaceutical industry today.
