Special Issue Information
The demand for the development of bioactive food ingredients derived from natural sources such as plant products has increased in recent years. Physical processing techniques such as thermal and non-thermal treatments, chemical modifications, enzymatic hydrolysis and bioprocessing techniques have been employed for the improvement in the quality of the bioactive composition of sustainable food products. However, the current gap in knowledge relates to fully understanding how these processes may impact the molecular structures and interactions of the components in the food, and, consequently, how these changes impact on the bioactivity and health-promoting effects of the bioactive composition of foods.
Therefore, contributions to this Special Issue may cover all recent advances related to the relevant process modifications and their impact on the biological activity and health benefits of bioactive plant food ingredients. Novel research manuscripts, review and mini-review manuscripts and short communications will be considered for publication in this Special Issue.

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. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2300 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.
