Special Issue "Chemical Contaminants in Beverages: ‘Traditional’ and Emerging Risks in an Ever-Changing World"
A special issue of Beverages (ISSN 2306-5710).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2017).
Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages are consumed very frequently by all of us from a very young age. Contamination of various beverages by natural and/or man-made chemicals has always been an issue for industry, regulators, and consumers. Megatrends, such as climate change and environmental pollution are expected to have an impact on contamination incidents worldwide by traditional and emerging contaminants. This Special Issue invites submissions that cover any of the various types of chemical contaminants (e.g., organic, inorganic, natural, synthetic, intentional contamination, process-derived, environmental) that may be encountered in regularly-consumed beverages. Submissions dealing with safety concerns due to chronic exposure to endogenous, non-ethanol components typically expected in some beverages (e.g., congeners in beer) are also invited.
