Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In its movement toward a healthier and longer-living population, Food Science has received wide opportunities for modern methods of instrumental analysis of new components and the creation of bioavailable delivery systems based on them. Accurate characterization of the original ingredients and the protocol for creating their new forms, evaluation of safety and efficacy, and the study of the invariability of the obtained properties in the composition of food products are what ensures the advancement of this field of knowledge and allows obtaining accurate and reproducible research results. This Special Issue focuses on the latest advances in the discovery, development, characterization, and application of new food functional ingredient delivery systems and methods for their research.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Foods 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 2400 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.
