Special Issue "Marine Food: Development, Quality and Functionality"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 December 2023 | Viewed by 2150
Interests: food bioprocessing and technology; development of marine functional factors; seafood-borne pathogens and food safety control
Recently, the development and application of marine-derived functional factors have received extensive attention. Active peptides, polysaccharides, and oligosaccharides; polyunsaturated fatty acids; and saponins from sea cucumbers, seaweeds, mollusks, crustaceans, and other marine biological resources have shown good physiological functions, making important contributions to human health. Marine biological resources are considered a treasure house of functional factors for marine functional food. Their development has become one of the important ways to realize the efficient utilization of marine biological resources. Correspondingly, many scientific problems still require clarification regarding the metabolism and action mechanism of marine functional food in vivo, as well as the interaction mechanisms with intestinal microorganisms. In addition, toxins, heavy metals, pathogens, organic pollutants, and microplastics carried by marine biological resources also pose a huge potential safety risk to the development of marine functional food.
For this reason, a Special Issue of Foods is being released that is focused on developing technology, physiological function and metabolism, and safety control of marine functional food. It will add value to marine functional food’s scientific and technological progress, industrial development, and contribution to human health.

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.
