Special Issue Information
Microwave processing techniques have been extensively used in the food industry due to the significant reduction in cooking time and energy consumption. Microwave-assisted food processing techniques utilize the advantages of microwave energy to overcome the shortcomings of conventional and some emerging food processing methods and exhibit high thermal efficiency, shorter processing time, reduced operational cost, and improved product quality.
Utilization of cold plasma technology, as a useful nonthermal technique, is encouraged in the food industry for enhancing antimicrobial activity, structural modification, decontamination of surfaces, and disinfection of food processing instruments.
Thus, this Special Issue on “Innovative Food Processing Technologies: Focus on Microwave-Assisted Technology and Cold Plasma” invites papers related to food engineering and technology, and particularly research associated with microwave-assisted technology and cold plasma.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 semimonthly 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 2400 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.
