Foods with Function Claims

In recent years, as Japan’s elderly population grows and issues arising from stress and lifestyle-related disease grow more common, interest in self-medication is rising. In line with this increase, demand for Foods with Function Claims that offer effects supported by scientific evidence is also expanding. To meet this demand, Lion is advancing research using the Fundamental Technologies it has cultivated in the development of household products and over-the-counter drugs to develop new, highly Foods with Function Claims.
