Special Issue in Processes: 10th Anniversary of Processes: Recent Advances in Food Processing Processes
Food production has faced a number of different challenges in recent years. Climate change, the increasing world population, and the war in Ukraine have created a global food crisis. Moreover, the food industry produces enormous amounts of animal and plant byproducts, which generate many environmental problems. These byproducts can be processed into valuable food ingredients, becoming natural sources of nutritionally enhancing compounds with many positive health effects. This necessitates the introduction of new technologies with improved energy efficiency, water savings, and use of food byproducts, all of which are present trends in food processing. Many innovations have recently been proposed to obtain high-quality and healthier food.
This Special Issue aims to collect recent advances in current trends in food processing and especially experimental, theoretical, and computational research on current trends in the development and improvement food processes. Chemical and biochemical reaction processes, mass transfer, grinding, drying, separation and purification processes, nanotechnology in food processes, heat transfer systems, mixing and fluid processes, integrated process design and scale-up, process modeling, simulation, optimization, food control, and food quality are all topics that may be included in this issue. Both original research papers and reviews are invited to expand knowledge on current trends in food and food byproduct processing.

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. Processes 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 2400 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.
