Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

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.
