I am delighted to let you know about a new Special Issue on “Composition Determination and Beverage Safety”.
Food safety is a fundamental demand of modern society. Consumers are increasingly requesting controls ensuring safe food, specifically due to problems from globalization and complex supplier chains. The composition determination of beverages is required to ensure this aim, starting from alcoholic to functional beverages, to energy and soft drinks. In addition to this, a determination of some specific compounds is also necessary, e.g., molecular markers dependent on product or production process.
The determination of main compounds is usually carried out using standard methods that involve several methods, starting from volumetric to chromatographic ones. On the other hand, the development of new methods is necessary to determine other compounds present in beverages or to increase the sensitivity of the standard methods.
In this Special Issue, we seek papers that expand the boundaries of our existing knowledge in this field, such as the optimization of standard methods, the development of new methods, the characterization of a specific beverage or the safety assessment of beverages.
Considering the whole beverage field, we encourage academics, researchers and practitioners to focus their attention on the composition determination and safety assessment in the beverage sector.
I look forward to receiving your contributions.
Prof. Giuliana Vinci
