Food Processing and Preservation Technologies: Advances and Applications
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 March 2024 | Viewed by 7330
In recent years, the demand for specialty products based on new ingredients, functional foods, alternative protein sources, gut health, and bioactive formulations increases continuously. The production of these products requires the application of advanced and innovative processes and technologies.
This Special Issue is focused on the advances and applications of various processes used in the food industry and in preservation technologies. It concerns new research and information on the use of innovative and non-traditional processing and preservation technologies during food production, processing, and transportation.
Therefore, this Special Issue will search original scientific developments and new perspectives in the following areas: (i) applications of various processes and preservation technologies in food production, (ii), novel and non-traditional methods for the transformation of food products, (iii) innovation for the production of functional foods and their storage, (iv) new methods and knowledge for shelf life extension, food safety, and the valorization of food processing by-products as well as energy efficiency. These topics are indicative and research is not strictly limited to them.
We invite you to contribute to this Special Issue. Review articles, short communications, and full-size research papers are all welcome.
Dr. Nikolay D. Menkov
