Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the remarkable advances in biotechnology, various types of drugs have been developed that can treat or prevent existing diseases. However, in addition to its main role in providing nutrition, food remains important in our daily life by preventing diseases threatening our well-being or significantly improving chronic diseases through daily intake. Therefore, the current Special Issue will focus on the health-promoting effects of various food-derived bioactive compounds and their comprehensive mechanistic studies. This issue covers a broad spectrum of substances in foods, including edible single compounds, plant extracts and probiotics such as Lactobacillus. Research on improving their activities will also be a valuable topic for this issue as well.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.
