Special Issue in Antioxidants: Dietary Antioxidants and Inflammation-Induced Chronic Diseases
With the development of science and technology, as well as the in-depth investigation of food chemicals and biological functions, more attention has been paid to the role of food in health promotion. Most acute and chronic diseases in humans are related to long-term unhealthy diets; therefore, studying the health-promoting effects of the bioactive ingredients of functional foods is of great significance. Using analytical chemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, histopathology and other technologies to study the interaction of functional food ingredients with organism biomacromolecules, gut microbiota, etc., can help us to further explore the mechanisms of active ingredients in the treatment and prevention of diseases (such as cancer, obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease) and in health promotion. Constructing targeted delivery systems to improve the bioavailability of functional food ingredients can also reveal the interaction mechanisms and health-promoting effects that occur with the organism at the molecular level, allowing precise nutritional intervention to be achieved.

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.
