The problems associated with the global food supply and quality, food safety, and nutrition require new point of view in the food sciences and technologies today, and alongside traditional technology, strategies able to convert renewable raw materials into food components, additives, and stabilizers to make “future food” healthier, more nutritious, and tastier will be developed. However, these foods still have problems with texture, nutrition, and flavor. Developing efficient strategies to modify and optimize the texture, taste, and nutritional properties of “future foods” is important in food processing. In this context, enzyme-based technology has become a powerful tool for rapid development within the food industry, since this technology reduces processing time, material cost, and energy input and is seen as non-toxic and eco-friendly.
In this Special issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Enzymes in food processing;
- Enzymatic-assisted extraction of food byproducts;
- Enzymes as tools to recover food wastes;
- Texturizing and flavoring enzymes;
- Enzymes as tools to improve the technological properties of food ingredients;
- Enzymes in real-time control of quality and safety parameters of food and processes (biosensors);
- Enzyme immobilization.

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.
