In recent years, peptides have received increased interest as one of the most important classes of bioactive food components. They are important as nutraceutical and active components in foods designed to obtain health benefits above and beyond their nutritional function. Peptides sufficient in diet aimed on metabolic syndrome prevention may serve as an example of compounds providing such benefits. Contemporary research includes, e.g., the discovery of novel bioactive peptides in food products and new activities of known compounds. The design and optimization of technological processes aimed at peptide release is an important task for food science and technology. The development of research strategies (e.g., in vitro and in vivo assays as well as bioinformatics) and analytical methods for identification and quantitation of biopeptides is also receiving major attention. Taste is one of the crucial factors affecting the acceptance of peptide-containing food products by consumers.
This Special Issue, entitled “Research of Bioactive Peptides in Foods”, will cover a selection of recent research articles, short communications, reviews, as well as perspectives in the area of bioactive peptides of food origin.

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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.
