Food Science and Technology

A section of Applied Sciences (ISSN 2076-3417).

Section Information

The Section on Food Science and Technology deals with the advancement of food quality; (bio)chemical characterization such as of nutritional composition, flavor compounds (volatiles and non-volatile compounds), bioactive compounds (antioxidants and other phytochemicals), and bioactivity; microbiological issues; and the design and evaluation of new formulated foods. It also includes some other aspects related to food technology, such as the effects of processing, stor-age, and preservation to maintain not only the quality but also the safety of foods. The main focus is on novel techniques for analytical purposes that could lead to increased food quality and safety and the development of new foods and in-gredients. Applied Sciences, in general, and this Section on Food Science and Technology, in particular, offer high-quality peer review followed by rapid publication. Download Section Flyer
