These changes are not linear or continuous, and they have been only distantly related to a person's chronological age.

As people get old, their dependency on certain nutritional foods increases especially medical foods to manage their health from chronic and age-related diseases.

Therefore, the increase in the geriatric population is expected to propel the growth of the medical foods market.
