Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Food safety risk assessment is the central component of risk analysis and provides a scientific basis for risk management decisions on measures that may be needed to protect human health. It takes into account all available relevant scientific data and identifies any uncertainties in the knowledge base. In food safety risk assessment, the sources of contaminants in food that are often discussed are physical, chemical, and biological.

This Special Issue on “Safety and Risk Assessment of Food Products” seeks high-quality works focusing on scientific and technical information and critical analysis for food products. Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Biological contaminants in food microorganisms, mycotoxins, plant toxins,;
  • Physical contaminants in food radiation, plastic particles, etc.;
  • Chemical substances in food—food additives, residues (g.,pesticide residues and veterinary drug), environmental contaminants (e.g., metals, persistent organic pollutants), food process contaminants (e.g., PAHs, acrylamide, 3-MPCD), contaminants derived from food packaging, etc.;
  • Original data on relevant topics (e.g., exposure and hazard assessment);
  • Quantitative risk assessment;
  • Comparative risk assessment;
  • Total diet study;
  • Epidemiology of foodborne diseases;
  • Risk perception/communication;
  • Risk management;
  • Benefit–risk analysis.
