Functional Foods as a Value-Added Strategy: The Commercial Potential of “Cancer-Fighting” Dairy Products
Levels of conjugated linoleic acid, which may help prevent cancer, can be elevated in milk. A sensory evaluation, willingness-to-pay survey, and feasibility analysis suggest that profit potential exists for producers serving niche markets via small-scale processing ventures. Households with children and health-conscious consumers appear most willing to pay premiums for “cancer-fighting” dairy products. Consumer demand and the legality of health claims hinge on pending medical research outcomes. Copyright 2003, Oxford University Press.
