Novel food preservation technologies are continuously demanding the development of more robust, efficient, sensitive, and cost-effective methods to guarantee the quality, safety, quality, and traceability during product shelf life, in agreement with consumer demands and legislation requirements. Consequently, the research about novel methods used in food preservation is a promising challenge to be applied in innovative applications and future trends with a great variety of technologies within reach of this topic.
In this sense, this Special Issue, “Novel Food Preservation Methods and Their Applications”, will cover a selection of original research and current review articles related to the use of new food preservation methods to ensure the quality and safety of the final product.
This Special Issue will focus primarily on following topics:
- Emerging food processing and preparation technologies;
- Food process, structure, and property relationship;
- Food processing, preparation, and preservation needs;
- Consumer trust and acceptance;
- Food preservation and smart packaging.
Original and review papers are welcome for inclusion in this Special Issue of Foods.
