The journal Foods (ISSN 2304-8158) is currently running a Special Issue entitled "Applications of Nanotechnology in Developing Functional Foods", for which we are serving as Guest Editors.
Functional foods have a large and growing global market and are regarded as one of the most actively researched areas of food science. Food products are considered functional if they provide a health benefit beyond the traditional nutrients they contain. Due to the high potential benefit of functional foods and the relationship between diet and health there is a huge interest in developing novel functional food products. Nanoparticles, nanotechnology techniques or tools could provide opportunities and challenges in functional food development. The aim of this Special Issue is, therefore, to collect contributions drawing on different and complementary areas of expertise focused on the role of nanotechnology in developing more sustainable food products.
We sincerely invite high quality original research and review papers encompassing both experimental and theoretical works addressing the synthesis of nanomaterials for the application in food products, as well as developing novel functional food products with the help of nanotechnology, and the evaluation of their quality and functionality.

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 2000 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.
