Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We kindly invite you to submit your contributions to this Special Issue entitled “Advances in Novel Foods, Gut Microbiota, and Human Health—Volume II”. This Special Issue aims to cover the most recent advances in the new trends of eating habits and behaviors and to assess and discuss their impact on human gut microbiota and human health and wellbeing. Thus, the development of new ingredients, new foods, new nutraceuticals or new delivery systems (e.g., hydrogels, nanoparticles and microparticles), or their application in a variety of food and nutraceutical-related industries, are welcome. Topics concerning the bioaccessibility and bioavailability of new ingredients or new foods, assessment of the impact on human gut microbiota, and research on the gut–brain axis and inflammatory axis are also welcome. Up-to-date original research and reviews on these topics are welcome; we look forward to receiving your interesting work.
