The term ‘functional foods’ is funny to me — once upon a time, almost all foods we ate were “functional,” designed by nature to provide our bodies with vitamins, nutrients, energy…all that good stuff. These days, though — when so much manufactured food is designed to fill our bellies or cravings but little else — the term “functional” (or “fortified”) foods is used to describe products that have been enhanced in some way (peanut butter with Omega 3’s, pasta with added calcium and that sort of thing).
