Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The role of dietary factors in promoting health, beyond their contribution to meeting essential nutrient requirements, is well established from epidemiological evidence. In this regard, a plethora of studies has been conducted to elucidate the bioactive properties of food-derived phytochemicals or plant-based components. More recently, however, the spotlight has focused on the tremendous potential of bioactive proteins and peptides that are derived from food for application as functional foods and nutraceuticals to enhance health and reduce risk of disease.

This Special Issue aims to present current knowledge and research trends concerning bioactive food proteins, with particular emphasis on the bioactive hydrolysates and peptides derived from food proteins. Possible topics range from basic fundamental research on structure-function relationships and mechanisms of action, to applied research on issues relating to the production, isolation, and characterization of bioactive components, or to considerations regarding the stability, bioavailability, and sensory (or techno-functional) properties of such components when they are incorporated into functional foods.

Thank you for contributing to this timely and exciting Special Issue.

Submission

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences 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 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs).
