What does a nutraceutical expert or consultant do? The term “nutraceutical” is used to describe these medicinally or nutritionally functional foods. Nutraceuticals, also called medical foods, phytochemicals, functional foods, and nutritional supplements, include such everyday products as “bio” yogurts and fortified breakfast cereals, as well as vitamins, herbal remedies, and even genetically modified foods and supplements. Nutraceuticals are the counterparts to pharmaceuticals, which are human-made imitations of some natural substances that the body needs to maintain health, fight disease, or provide the body with some ingredients it needs.
A nutraceutical expert is normally someone who has an education in chemistry or biology, and a background and experience in the food or pharmaceutical industries. Nutraceutical experts do many different things. Often they are called upon by companies expanding into nutraceuticals, or by investors conducting due diligence on related projects. In matters involving nutraceutical-related litigation, the nutraceutical consultant may serve as an expert witness and assist the attorneys with a better understanding of the exact issues involved and may testify in court about the nutraceutical-related matters.
