Multiple factors can directly influence the chemical composition of foods, and consequently their organoleptic, nutritional, and bioactive properties, including their geographical origin; their variety or breed; as well as their conditions of cultivation, breeding, and/or feeding, among others. Therefore, there is a great interest in the development of accurate, robust, and high-throughput analytical methods to guarantee the authenticity and traceability of foods. For these purposes, a large number of sensorial, physical, and chemical approaches can be used, which must be normally combined with advanced statistical tools.
The aim of this Special Issue is to gather original research papers and review articles focused on the development and application of analytical techniques and emerging approaches in food authentication. Works dealing with the characterization of food components potentially linked to its traceability and their role in human health are also welcome.
