Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Necessary for proper body function is the continuous supply of essential nutrients. The food supplied should be optimal in terms of composition as well as of the highest quality that ensures its safe use. Food analysis involves the determination of trace and essential elements and chemical compounds in raw materials of various origins (plant, animal, marine organisms, fungi, or microorganisms) In addition, also included are finished food products, and the monitoring of qualitative and quantitative changes during technological processes and storage. Consideration must also include not only ingredients that have a beneficial effect on the human organism but also those with toxic effects. Therefore, analytical procedures are constantly being developed using modern instrumental methods that allow food products to be examined in terms of their chemical and biological composition. An extremely important aspect in the development of such procedures is the stage of collection and preparation of the sample for measurement. The sample should be representative, and its preparation (for quantitative determinations) should avoid analyte loss and sample contamination and ensure maximum efficiency of analyte isolation from the matrix. The validated parameters should be within the acceptable criteria and should not raise questions concerning the reliability and validity of the analytical results obtained. In the broadest of terms, all original articles, communications, systematic reviews, and mini-reviews on the latest developments and emerging trends in the area of modern analytical methods used for the determination of constituents in food are welcome.
