Since 2009 the biannual International Conference on Foodomics (www.foodomics.eu) is the scientific forum where academic and industrial scientists involved in food and nutrition research discuss about the most recent advances in the "omics" approach. Since that time, foodomics has been considered the holistic approach for discovering: (i) foods, food components and nutraceuticals; (ii) the nutrients bioaccessibility and their mechanisms of action; (iii) the role of digestion and of microbiota on the nutrients fate; (iv) nutrition and diet in clinical sciences. Aiming at this objective, food genomics, proteomics and metabolomics, together, provide the broadest vision about the link between nutrition and health. The science behind this innovative perspective requires a multi-disciplinary integration, not easy to achieve, because food technologists, nutritionists, chemists, clinicians and other specialists still lack a common ground for their interactions. This special issue aims to publish original research papers, innovative application results, technical articles, opinions, and reviews on different aspects of foodomics.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Foods is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 550 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
