Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Numerous emerging contaminants in foods have brought great threats to humans, arousing. These emerging contaminants include but are not limited to persistent organic pollutants, flame retardtants, pesticide residues, veterinary drugs, plasticizers, microplastics and modified mycotoxins. However, our current understanding about the occurrence and related adverse health outcomes of emerging contaminants is still very limited. This poses significant challenges for us to comprehensively assess the risk of humans ingesting emerging contaminants through dietary intake. To solve this problem, the following aspects need special attention: (1) identification methods of emerging contaminants at trace levels. Most of the emerging contaminants are measured in nanograms or even femtograms in foods. It is a great challenge to identify these contaminants in a complex food matrix. (2) Occurrence and source apportionment of emerging contaminants in different food categories. There is an urgent need for comprehensive data on the levels, distribution, and source apportionment of emerging contaminants in various food matrices. (3) Transport and transformation of of emerging contaminants in the food chain. There are many study gaps in the behavior of these contaminans in the feed-to-food chain, or in the food chain of wildlife.
