Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As is known, food has been a main concern of mankind, not only because it is essential to live, grow, and function, but also because it has a substantial effect on the economy with daily produced crops. As the utilization of raw materials has widened from hunger satisfaction to nutrient supplying, and usage in the prevention of nutrition-related diseases, innovative food processing technologies were created in response to this. Food processing is already a crucial field, and has been since ancient times, paving the way for humanity to lead a sedentary life and was also essential in supporting civilization. Moreover, topics like public health, sustainability challenges and preference of consumers necessitate this field to change and develop continuously. Hence, the food industry is resolutely looking for different procedures to produce and store crops. In these circumstances, researchers play a vital role in the development of new novel technologies.

The aim of this Special Issue is to provide an update to the knowledge and important actions that have been carried out at a global scale in the field of food processing technology for raw materials. From the enormous amount of knowledge generated from different processes, submissions about raw materials, including meat and seafood, milk, fruits, vegetables, cereals, medicinal aromatic plants, edible oils, wines, beverages, and all kinds of technologies (thermal, nonthermal, high static pressure processing, etc.) applied on these food materials, are particularly encouraged.
