Interests: improving food supply for health; nutrient profiling; nutrition and ageing
The food supply is changing in order to respond to public health and sustainability challenges. Sustainability, farm-to-fork, and increased nutritional value have become part of the manufacturing strategy to address current and future health and societal issues. Traditionally, food reformulation has focused on removing salt, saturated fats, and sugar, with further emphasis on increasing other components, such as fibre, calcium, and iron. Emerging novel foods go beyond this traditional approach and introduce new functionality, properties, or traits, by using novel ingredients or processing methods.
In this Special Issue, we invite papers on all aspects relevant to food reformulation and innovation in the context of (public) health. In particular, submissions using epidemiological approaches, modelling approaches, or submissions that address technological or ethical challenges and constraints associated with food reformulation and innovation are encouraged.
