Special Issue Information
Meat is the most important source of protein for humans; however, it is also the most perishable food type, which causes severe illness in the case of spoilage. Preservation and intelligent packaging can extend the shelf life and provide information about the quality of meat to the consumers and manufacturers at any stage of supply chain. The emergence of preservation and smart packaging technologies reduces hazards such as foodborne diseases and provides new technology to monitor food spoilage from farm to table. A variety of indicators and sensors have been proposed to warn about meat spoilage in the meat industry. How to use these sensors in packaging to monitor the quality of meat during storage and transportation is a problem that deserves researching. The aim of this Special Issue is to provide readers with a concise overview on recent developments and novel approaches in preservation, active packaging and nondestructive testing in the meat industry. The proposed Special Issue will be dedicated to high-quality research articles, as well as original review papers, that highlight recent advancements in intelligent materials and nondestructive testing methods for the meat industry.
