This Special Issue aims to consider recent developments concerning the science and technology of milk and dairy products, with an impact on product development considering the most current drivers within the dairy sector. This Special Issue has a broad range of topics, and we welcome you to contribute submissions (including original research and current review articles) addressing milk or milk product composition and the effects of genetic factors as well as technology on the nutritional/functional properties of dairy products, energy consumption and sustainability. We are also interested in papers investigating new milk sources, the development of new products with nutritional added-value products and consumers acceptance. Further, we welcome recent developments in the detection of bioactive compounds naturally present in traditional products (mainly traditional cheeses) as natural elements contributing nutritional value.
Additional topics of interest for the Special Issue include, but are not limited to:
- Recent evolutions of milk and milk product technology and processing, including packaging and market solutions;
- Recent knowledge on nutritional attributes of traditional dairy products;
- New solutions for dairy product sustainable processing;
- New dairy product development and novel clean-label ingredients with nutritional added-value properties;
- New technologies applied to the dairy sector including Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing and machine learning.
