The global nutraceutical market is defined as aggregate sales of functional food, beverage and supplements fortified with bioactive ingredients, including fiber, probiotic, protein and peptides, omega, phytochemicals, and vitamins and minerals. Currently, foods, beverages and supplements equally contribute about 33 percent each to the total global nutraceutical market. However, functional beverages are expected to overtake the other two markets. The supplement market, on the other hand, is nearly reaching saturation.
