Today, more than ever, consumers are increasingly health-conscious, especially when it comes to food and drink choices. In response to consumer demands, beverages are often fortified with vitamins to compensate for losses during production, improve nutrition and enhance quality of the end product. Energy drinks, dairy beverages and enhanced waters are common examples of vitamin-enhanced drinks readily available in most countries.
Original and review papers dealing with all aspects of vitamin drinks are welcome for inclusion in this Special Issue of Beverages. This issue will focus primarily on:
- Processing methods
- Policy implications
- Sensory properties
- Health effects
