LC–MS is a powerful tool in food analysis. Consumers, as well as food suppliers and regulatory authorities, are increasingly demanding food quality, safety, and authenticity. These parameters rely on the identification and quantification of key molecules as bioactive compounds, contaminants, or regional markers, which can be readily achieved with mass spectrometry detection, particularly high-resolution and accurate instruments possessing MS/MS capabilities. Modern instruments can generate information to identify hundreds to thousands compounds in a single run. This identification power, along with their high selectivity and sensitivity, allows for high throughput under both targeted and untargeted analysis.
The present Special Issue will include reviews and full-length research articles covering the latest research trends and applications of LC–MS in food quality, safety, and authenticity. In addition, an overview of recent trends and developments in important extraction approaches and applications of LC–MS will be highlighted.
Scientists working in food sciences on LC–MS method development and validation, as well as food omics, bioactive compounds, food safety, food quality, food authenticity, food contamination and deterioration, etc., using LC–MS, are cordially invited to contribute with a research or review article in this Special Issue. The degree of novelty and the significance of the research will be scrutinized prior to the peer-review process.
