Nutrition and Health Benefits

Many consumers make food choices that will benefit health. Food manufacturers and restaurant chefs have responded to scientific findings linking health with nutrition by offering an abundant selection of health-promoting foods and beverages. Foods that provide health benefits beyond their nutrient contributions are called functional foods. Whole foods—as natural and familiar as oatmeal or tomatoes—are the simplest functional foods. In other cases, foods have been modified to provide health benefits, perhaps by lowering the fat contents. In other cases, manufacturers have fortified foods by adding nutrients or phytochemicals that provide health benefits Examples of these functional foods include orange juice fortified with calcium to help build strong bones and margarine made with a plant sterol that lowers blood cholesterol.
Consumers typically welcome new foods into their diets, provided that these foods are reasonably priced, clearly labeled, easy to find in the grocery store, and convenient to prepare. These foods must also taste good—as good as the traditional choices. Of course, a person need not eat any of these “special” foods to enjoy a healthy diet; many “regular” foods provide numerous health benefits as well. In fact, “regular” foods such as whole grains; vegetables and legumes; fruits; meats, fish, and poultry; and milk products are among the healthiest choices a person can make.
(Passage Taken from Book: Understanding Nutrition by Roles, Pinna, Whitney)
Q1: Which of the following is the simplest functional food?

(a) margarine with sterol extract
(b) oatmeal
(d) orange juice with Calcium
(e) chocolates
