Special Issue in Foods: Advances in Novel Foods, Gut Microbiota, and Human Health—Volume II
According to the United Nations Organization and in accordance with the Sustainable Development Goals, establishing the importance of responsible production and consumption, 1,300 million tons of food and derivatives are wasted each year. This Special Issue is an opportunity to present original or review papers related to the use, recovery, and recycling of agroindustrial and food waste to produce molecules or compounds of high added value with possible biological activities and can be applied in the food, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, agricultural, textile, and medical industries, among others. The use of low-cost strategies such as solid-state and submerged fermentation systems for the accumulation of compounds of interest will be considered. Alternative strategies for the separation, identification, and purification of bioactive molecules that can be generated from agroindustrial and food waste will be considered. It is important to demonstrate, establish, and manage strategies to reduce food losses in production and supply chains, as well as significantly reduce greenhouse gases, with the implementation of strategies for the use and recovery of water to improve human health and the environment.
