Interests: lipids quality and nutrition; lipidomics; analysis and characterization of lipids
Lipids are one of the three macronutrients needed by the body and are naturally found in many biological resources consumed as agro-foods or added as ingredients in processed foods. Lipids and their derivatives exert indispensable functionalities in maintaining a desirable color, flavor, texture, and nutritional quality of food. The roles of lipids in organisms include energy storage, the formation of cellular membranes, signal transduction, endocrine regulation, and inflammation. Therefore, the composition, structure, and state of lipids not only determine the quality and safety of food but also are closely related to their biological functions and nutritional quality. However, there are some problems existing in natural lipids such as their single structural composition, simple physicochemical properties, and low nutritional value. The molecular modification of lipids is an ideal approach to improve the physicochemical properties, expand the application scope, and enhance their functional activity including regulating blood lipids, preventing atherosclerosis, and improving memory and anti-inflammation. This Special Issue will focus on the advances and trends in advanced research on functional lipids.

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.
