I have to agree with some of the critics on this one. What functional foods seem to lack is the awareness of how substances interact with the added supplements in the food. For example, a moderate to high water content in foods that contain probiotics can activate added probiotics before they get to your digestive tract, making them relatively useless when you ingest them. It's tough to know what you're actually getting with many of these functional foods. But you can always count on a higher price tag. Personally, I take things like probiotics and vitamin D3 in a supplement to make sure I'm getting the potency I need.
