THURSDAY 22ND NOVEMBER, GALLERY ROOM 7
Those eating free-from foods need to supplement to some degree because they could be cutting required antioxidants, proteins, minerals and vitamins from their diets.

Functional foods are created for people who need specific supplementation, and can be a good way of getting key nutrients into those on very restricted diets and with complex nutritional needs.
