Membrane processes are well-known and widely used in various fields such as biomedicine, pharmacy, air, soil and water protection, breeding, agriculture, energetics, etc. This special issue is focused on their application in the food industry.
Along with the conventional application of membranes in the production of dairy products, fruit juices, wine, and beer, etc., there are also some studies in the scientific literature on new membranes and/or their non-traditional applications such as membrane emulsification, electrodialysis of organic acids from the fermentation broth, as well as their use for the production of innovative foods.
Therefore, this Special issue will search original scientific developments in the following areas: (i) new materials for membrane production, (ii) novel or existing membranes with a new application in food preservation and processing, and (iii) the production of innovative and functional foods obtained as a result of membrane processes. These topics are indicative and research is not strictly limited to them.
We invite you to contribute to this Special Issue. Review articles, short communications, and full-size research papers are all welcome.

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. Membranes is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
