Medical foods refer to food products that are formulated to be administered or consumed under the supervision of a physician or intended for the dietary management of diseases and conditions. They are composed of vitamins, minerals (like zinc and calcium), botanicals, coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), taurine, omega-2 fatty acids and antioxidants. Due to the presence of these nutrients, medical foods manage nutritional deficiencies that affect disease progression and are healthier alternatives to naturally occurring foodstuffs used in a natural state. Medical foods also enhance the immune and digestive systems while aiding the cognitive behavior of consumers. Nowadays, they are available in various forms such as pills, pre-thickened products and puddings, powder and liquids for oral intake or enteral feeding by tube.
