Food bioactive compounds are substances occurring in small concentrations in foods and have emerged as key food components related to healthy status. With the ageing process of population, non-communicable diseases are increasing, and these compounds appear as putative alternatives for disease prevention and therapeutics. However, the potential effects of bioactive compounds depend on the digestion process (including microbiota metabolization), which affects their bioavailability and beneficial effects on health. The current issue will be focused on recent and latest research on the advances regarding bioactive compounds from food on human health. This issue is divided into three main areas: (a) bioactive compounds in chronic diseases, (b) health effects of digestive metabolites from bioactive compounds, (c) tools/technologies to improve health effects of bioactive compounds.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Foods is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2900 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
