The utilization of biomaterials, especially biopolymers (in nano- and micro-scales), has widened their applications in the food industry. Designing new and innovative foods, packages, beverages, and antimicrobial/antifungal agents and creating novel functional food formulations or cutting-edge devices are just a few of their applications.
Modern food-grade biopolymers allow for the modulation of food matrices and their functional characteristics. In different forms, biopolymers can target delivery and safeguard a particular biomolecule or living cells (enzymes, probiotics) inside the food matrix. These bio-polymers are intended to satisfy several characteristics such as carriers, target/multistage delivery, foam formation, conjugates of biomolecules, gelling systems, colloid formation, etc.; all foods, beverages, and innovative packages are acceptable matrices.
This Special Issue will cover all these potential food and beverage applications of nano- and micro-scale biopolymers, and welcomes the submission of reviews and original research articles.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. 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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
