Nowadays, the food industry is constantly looking for new product ideas that follow global trends, producers combine innovation with tradition in the development of new products. The use of new raw materials in assortment diversification is a necessity imposed by the depletion of conventional raw materials, obtaining functional foods, dietary foods, etc. Researchers in the field are moving towards for the discovery of new raw material resources, for example, raw materials that can replace animal proteins and fats, sugar and salt, gluten from bakery products, etc. The use of these unconventional raw materials in manufacturing recipes is a great challenge for specialists in the field, but also in terms of consumer acceptability and legislation in force.
The large number of raw materials in the attention of researchers in the food industry leads us to believe that this Special Issue of Applied Sciences Journal entitled "Unconventional Raw Materials for Food Products" will be a success. We look forward to the work of colleagues immersed in investigating the nutritional, functional and technological properties of new ingredients that can be used in food manufacturing recipes, and we look forward to new perspectives and challenges in this field.
We cordially invite researchers to contribute original and unpublished research and review articles to be published in this Special Issue.
