Special Issue in Foods: The Future of Foods: Recent Advances and Perspectives on Food Quality and Safety
The increasing food/feed demand, together with the persistent dependence on oils for energetic purposes, makes oil production an issue that deserves continuous attention. Additionally, the concerns on oil production environmental impacts, as well as the climate change effects on oil crops needs to be discussed and probably reshaped to grant the future oil supply that our society will need.
This Special Issue aims to look into the production, processing and quality of oils for food/feed, cosmetic, biodiesel and other purposes, without forgetting waste management. Articles focusing on new or renewed oil sources production are welcomed, from vegetable, microalgae, insect or other sources.Prof. Susana Casal
