The Mediterranean Diet plays a well-established protective role against chronic diseases such as diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular diseases, different forms of cancer, Alzheimer disease, and even autoimmune disorders. Meanwhile, the Mediterranean diet is also linked with planetary health. It presents a better ecological footprint compared with other patterns due to the higher consumption of local in-season plant foods, the low ecological pressure by food production and consumption, as well as the lower intake of animal protein. Hence, encouraging people to increase adherence to Mediterranean diet would contribute substantially to decreased risk of chronic diseases as well as to sustainability of the food supply chain (from farm to fork), with a plethora of benefits for the environment.
In this Special Issue of Foods, we would like to bring together manuscripts dealing with the topic of “Mediterranean Diet: Promoting Health and Sustainability”. Different types of manuscripts on this topic, including original human and animal studies, dietary interventions, food analysis focusing mainly on the nutritional value of Mediterranean foods, systemic reviews, and metanalyses, are welcome.
