Food bioactives are physiologically active components in food or dietary supplements of plant or animal origin that have a role in health beyond basic nutrition. The addition of bioactive components to foods, particularly those foods that are consumed as part of the normal diet of target populations, offers opportunities for improving the health and well-being of consumers. The interest of the food industry in these functional foods has resulted in the development of a new generation of food products with enhanced levels of food components that have potential health benefits (Schmidl and Labuza 2000; Hilliam 2000; Heasman and Mellentin 2001; Augustin and Clarke 2004).
