Food processing, such as cooking, drying, pasteurization, and preservation, provides products with longer shelf lives, prefered organoleptic characteristics, and the enhanced digestibility of nutrients. However, at the same time, processing introduces or generates diverse harmful substances, including endogenously-derived hazards (such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, heterocyclic amines, acrylamide, 3-monochloropropanodiol, 5-hydroxymethylfurfural, and acrolein), environmental contaminants, food packaging migrants, mycotoxins, bacterial toxins, etc.
Numerous novel food-borne hazards have been continuously discovered in recent decades. Therefore, research on the determination, formation mechanisms, mitigation strategies, and risk assessment of hazardous food substances are extremely necessary to control food safety and improve public health. This research topic aims to fill the knowledge gap concerning the harmful substances derived from food processing by introducing the latest research to related areas. The control of food-borne hazards is necessary to guarantee public health, which relies on the theoretical elucidation of the mechanisms related to the formation and mitigation of the hazards.

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.
