Topical Collection Information
Considering the modern nutritional science and health tendency of modern food technology, as well as today’s busy lifestyle, the use of edible films and coatings as food materials seems to be an important topic to consider, in order to improve food preservation and reduce the use of chemical preservatives. Moreover, as food items are extremely vulnerable to contamination, the production of materials to detect food spoilage is also vitally important to the daily busy lifestyle.
Although there have been developments in environmentally friendly processes and the engineering of functional materials from biodegradable and naturally abundant resources, the pressure supported by the biodiversity of the planet is expected to be partially released. In some cases, they can be obtained from by-products.
In the field of food packaging and coating, alternative bio-based plastics have been thoroughly researched, due to their biodegradability, biocompatibility, and the abundance of biomass resources. This biodegradable nature also affords other advantages, such as a reduction in environmental pollution.

Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Foods is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
