However, the functional food is mostly attributed to possess credence attributes that is the product attributes cannot be claimed directly by the consumers. Such a factor is expected to critically affect the global industry over the forecast period. Labeling on a product might claim that it constitutes extra dosage of calcium, which helps in preventing osteoporosis disease. However, consumers are unable to evaluate such claims as the nutrients cannot be smelled or tasted and do not have any proper shape.
