Fiber[edit]

Does eating to much fiber have a negative effect on the human body

Yes: flatulence. In extremely high levels, it can also interfere with normal digestive processes and cause malnutrition by making the person feel too full to want to eat enough nutrients. WhatamIdoing (talk) 18:15, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Origin of term[edit]

Dictionary.com says this term comes from the Japanese language: kinsei-shokuhin = 'functionality' 'food'. Is this correct? Badagnani 06:27, 11 February 2007 (UTC)

link to purported "functional foods"?[edit]

Camelina sativa - maybe as see also - or integration into text? Emesee (talk) 21:28, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

why do super food redirects here????[edit]

Why do super food redirects here this is not what no super food is. Dr Oz gives a different deffinition and that is like almonds and sweet potatoe and spiniche. I guess he knows better than you so please don't have super food redirect here it doesnt have NOTHING to do with food you add shit to to make it better. It is already super food by itself.

I just lol with the Dr Oz evangelists — Preceding unsigned comment added by 150.254.159.57 (talk) 10:36, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

Functional food continuum table[edit]

I believe it would be smart to convert this graphic into textual table, since there is no graphical elements in the picture that would add anything informative to it. It would also make editing and adding references to it easier. The graphic now - although well demonstrative - looks a bit too clumsy for Wikipedia. Jakce (talk) 13:55, 31 October 2011 (UTC)

Nonsense[edit]

Proposed merge with Functional food definition by FFC[edit]

Functional food definition by FFC may have material of use to Functional food. It isn't clear to me how notable a single organization's definition of FF is, to the extent that it differs from the definition already given in Functional food. Moreover, a lot of the newer article consists of justifications for the definition, violating WP:NPOV and WP:SOAPBOX, and works through the reasoning and process of how the definition was arrived it, internal details that may not be of encyclopedic interest to those removed from the organization's proceedings. —Largo Plazo (talk) 21:58, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

I reverted the wholesale edit added to the article today. It looks plagiarized from FFC's own materials and is not encyclopedic per WP:NOTTEXTBOOK. I added this to the comment concerning the AfD for FFC: "Functional food definition by FFC": whether academically accurate or not (FFC is related to a university). It should not be merged with the existing Functional Food article, an action which DanikMartirosyan attempted to do without WP:CON today. The edit contains information showing DanikMartirosyan is President of the FFC, so a probable WP:COI applies. I reverted it and will be placing a warning on this user's Talk page. --Zefr (talk) 00:23, 12 October 2016 (UTC)
