Vast amount of foods and food production raw materials are used in the form of powders. The advantages of powders include smaller volumes, easier transportation and handling, low moisture contents and extended shelf life. These advantages have led to an increasing use of food powders in the food-processing industry in general, as well as in the field of beverage production. Coffee, powdered milk, cocoa, instant tea, vitamin/mineral instant mixes, and beverage powders for specific purposes are some examples of beverage powders present on the market. Today, as consumer demand for functional and “easy to use” products rises, the need for developing new, nutritionally balanced, instant beverage powders is increasing at the same time. New technologies emerge to produce such beverages with optimal nutritional, sensory, physical, and chemical properties. This Special Issue is intended to unite the aspects of beverage powder development, production, and analysis, which include:
Reviews on methods and technologies used in beverage powder production
Physical, chemical and sensory properties of beverage powders
Development of functional beverage powders
New technologies in production functional beverage powders
