Special Issue in Molecules: Natural and Synthetic Phenolic Compounds for Food Applications
Natural phenolic compounds are widely present, not only in foods, but also in non-edible, easily-accessible sources, such as waste materials from agri-food industries. Based on their potent antioxidant properties, the possible exploitation of natural phenols as food supplements, as well as functional ingredients in food and in the cosmetic industry, have gained more and more attention. This Special Issue welcomes original research articles relating to innovative applications of natural phenolic compounds from edible or non-edible natural sources in the field of nutrition and biomedicine, e.g., in food supplements or functional foods for the prevention of oxidative-stress related diseases, as well as additives in smart food packaging, biomedical devices and cosmetic products. The identification of the main phenolic components and the characterization of the antioxidant and other relevant specific properties for their exploitation as functional ingredients in the health, food and/or cosmetic sector are required. Review articles describing the current state-of-the-art are also welcome.
