Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Phenolic compounds include tocopherols and tocotrienols, collectively known as tocols, with vitamin E activity, as well as secondary plant metabolites (i.e., phenolic acids, flavonoids, stilbenes, coumarins, lignans, and tannins). Phenolic compounds protect plants and plant foods from biotic and abiotic oxidative stress as well as herbivory. This property is therefore important until the post-harvest time. From the food processing standpoint, lipid oxidation is a most important deterioration problem faced by the food industry. The consequence of lipid oxidation is noted mainly by the negative changes found in terms of nutritional quality, food safety, and sensory characteristics of food. Therefore, natural antioxidants are also crucial ingredients employed by the food industry to decrease and/or prevent lipid oxidation. However, phenolic compounds are not only good for plant health, but also render a myriad of other bioactivities.  The health benefits of phenolic compounds, in vitro and in vivo, are supported by both epidemiological and animal and human studies. Phenolics may act as free radical terminators, metal chelators, but their antioxidant properties are also important to overcome inflammatory responses caused by different factors including exposure to xenobiotics and pathogenic microorganisms.

This Special Issue invites contributions addressing the antioxidant properties of phenolic compounds in plants, plant foods, and by-products thereof as well as their metabolites and derivatives. Original articles or review papers focusing on phenolic antioxidants and their impact on agronomical/plant science, food science, nutrition and health will be considered.
