Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Food safety and quality is currently a global concern, as is its impact on human health. There is a great deal of research being conducted on this topic worldwide, although, at present, new studies on food safety and quality are increasingly being conducted using new equipment and methodologies. Despite this evidence, studies relating food safety to human health are scarce. Foodborne diseases can originate at any stage of food production, such as food production in the farm areas (fruits, vegetables, seeds) or production in food factories, storage, transportation, selling spots or even in the final consumers' homes. Considering this reality, we invite our colleagues to submit research or review manuscripts targeting food quality and food safety and its impact on human health.

Dr. Miguel Elias
Guest Editor
