Hyperspectral imaging is a relatively novel technology in the food sector. It merges the benefits of computer vision with spectroscopy. When near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy is applied, it provides the advantages of getting chemical information from a sample, allowing building calibration or classification models based on biochemical properties of food samples. Its application can also allow for the studying of the spatial distribution of a compound of property of importance for food quality.
Hyperspectral imaging has been applied at the research level for a wide range of food products, from meat, to dairy products, fruits and vegetables, and grains. Due to the huge amount of data and the redundancy of some information, challenges still exist regarding the implementation of this technology at the food industry level, in a holistic approach taking into consideration food chemistry and biochemistry, sensor development, hardware, and chemometrics.
You are therefore invited to submit your research papers on any aspect related to applications of multi- or hyperspectral imaging in the field of food science and technology, and industrial applications are particularly welcome.
The final deadline for submitting manuscripts is 10 December 2020. All manuscripts will be peer-reviewed, and manuscripts received before the deadline will be immediately processed.

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 papers will be 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 monthly 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 1600 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.
