Special Issue Information
We are pleased to invite you to submit an original contribution to this Special Issue of Agriculture, entitled “Agricultural Meat Products: Processing, Product Quality and Food Safety”, covering different types of meat (beef, pork, chicken, and small ruminants). This Special Issue will contain various contributions, ranging from research papers to updated reviews.
Over the last few years, the agri-food sector has been facing different challenges. Food insecurity is a substantial problem that has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and has thus been incorporated into the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations. In this context, we must aim to ensure food security, enhance nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture.
Meat is a highly valued and nutritious food. Meat and meat products are an important source of protein, fat, and various functional compounds. Their quality traits and nutritional value depend on animal genetics, feeding, livestock practices, and post-mortem procedures. At this time, consumer choices and concerns exert significant pressure on production, processing, and marketing systems.
The Special Issue “Agricultural Meat Products: Processing, Product Quality and Food Safety” attempts to generate constructive discussion and point out innovative developments in this research area. It includes, but is not limited to, the following relevant topics:
- Meat safety and quality;
- Processing technologies;
- Emerging technology in meat preservation;
- Ingredients and additives for meat products;
- Shelf-life studies;
- Consumption studies.
