Dear Colleagues,The study of the role of plant-derived antioxidants in food and human health has gained increased research interest. Scientific evidence has demonstrated that the human health influence of fruits, vegetables, tea, coffee, and cacao originates from their antioxidant capacity. An antioxidant is a molecule capable of inhibiting the oxidation of other molecules. Antioxidants can protect the human body from free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS), delaying many chronic diseases, as well as lipid peroxidation.
The most representative dietary antioxidants are vitamin C, tocopherols, carotenoids, and polyphenols. They may have synergistic effects; in fact, the diet represents a good example where the interactions of the constituents may give positive effects that are greater than the properties of the individual constituents. The main objective of this Special Issue on "Antioxidant Activity of Food Constituents" is to be an open forum where researchers may share their investigations and findings in this field and, thanks to the open access platform, increase their visibility and the chance to interact with industries and production systems.
In this Special Issue, contributions, including original research and review articles, are welcome and may cover all aspects of antioxidants in health promoting activities. In particular, food fortification, antioxidant stability, synergistic and antagonistic effects, bioaccessibility, bioavailability, mechanism of action by different methods and approaches are of particular interest.

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 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.
