Special Issue Information
For this upcoming Special Issue of Foods, you are welcome to submit original research and review articles which may advance our current knowledge about “Technologies of Food Extraction, Pressing, Extrusion, and Drying”.
The processing of foods and assertive use of agroindustrial byproducts and wastes from vegetable and fruit handling can mitigate hunger, food insecurity, and malnutrition. Many technologies have been proposed to improve the extraction of macro and minor constituents from foods, wastes, and byproducts, such as pressing, extrusion, drying, and association of these with traditional or modern solvent extraction techniques.
This Special Issue of Foods is focused on studies that could present solutions to:
- Maximize the recovering yields of lipids, proteins, fibers, vitamins, or antioxidants;
- Improve the availability of macro and minor nutrients;
- Preserve the nutritional value of processed foods by mechanical approaches, such as extrusion and pressing;
- Modify structural, rheological, functional, or sensory aspects to increase the acceptability and commercial applications.
