Special Issue "Bioactive Compounds from Food Waste: Bioprocessing and Technological Advancement"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2018).
Interests: muscle biochemistry; meat quality, bioactive compounds from food by-products, enzymatic hydrolysis; new product development; ethnic food; halal food
Generation of food by-products or food waste is unavoidable in commercial food production. While extensive efforts have been made to transform these downstream waste materials into animal feed and organic fertilizers, interest in adding value, capture of maximum nutritional value of the resource, as well as the discovery of potential health benefits that can be gained from extraction of bioactives, is growing. Several novel and environment-friendly technologies have made the utilization and extraction of antioxidants a worthy activity that can potentially lead to commercial reality.
This Special Issue would welcome original research and reviews of literature examining the use of novel and emerging technologies that can maximise the quantitative and qualitative extraction of antioxidants. A wide interest for the waste materials (meat, seafood, wine, dairy, agricultural waste, cereal processing, fermentation, nuts processing, brewery, coffee, oilseed processing). Contributions addressing the following topics are welcome:
- Use of emerging technologies for the extraction of antioxidants;
- Modelling studies and economical cost-benefit analysis;
- Identification of antioxidants from waste;
- Reviews examining waste utilisation from inedible waste sources for antioxidant recovery (systematic reviews and meta-analyses);
- Solvent free and green technologies.

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. Antioxidants 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 1200 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.
