Special Issue "Honeys and Bee Products: Physicochemical, Biological and Nutritive Properties"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 18 March 2024 | Viewed by 5193
Interests: bee products; biochemistry; food engineering; analytical chemistry
Under the background of the Healthy China initiative, research on the exploration of natural food with nutrition and healthy function has become a hotspot in food science. Honey not only is favored by consumers due to its unique flavor but also possesses a wide use of pharmacological activities and biological functions as a natural dietary antioxidant. The key to revealing the honey–human health relationship is defining the physicochemical, biological and nutritional properties of honey and honey products.
In this Special Issue of Foods, we would like to invite authors to submit original manuscripts within the scope of the proposed topics. Submissions of original research; reviews of current scientific literature, including systematic reviews and meta-analyses; and short reports are welcomed. We believe that this Special Issue, “Honeys and Bee Products: Physicochemical, Biological and Nutritive Properties”, will highlight the most recent advances in bioactive compounds and related analytical methods, nutritional values and biological functions.
