Food quality is a fundamental requirement for consumers, and there is growing interest in food-quality assessment. Meat and meat products are popular foods because they provide many nutrients, such as proteins, vitamins, and minerals, to maintain human health. With the rapid development of the social economy and national living standards, people are paying increasing attention to the quality and consumer preferences of meat and meat products. Many novel analytical methods including intelligent sensory technology, GC-IMS, CATA, and RATA have been introduced in the research on meat quality and consumer preferences. Research results are widely applied in many fields including quality control, food marketing, food inspection, and detection, which provides theoretical guidance and technical support for the rapid development of modern food flavor science and the food industry. Given the above development, Foods is now inviting authors to submit unpublished original articles for the Special Issue “Meat Quality and Consumer Preferences”.
Topics covered in this Special Issue include but are not limited to:
- Meat quality evaluation based on new analytical techniques
- Flavor generation and release in meat products
- The development of intelligent sensory technologies for meat products
- Meat processing engineering and techniques
- Consumer psychology and behavior
- Flavor perception and psychophysics
- Sensory evaluation of meat products
- Consumer preferences for meat products
- Artificial intelligence and consumers
