Foods of animal origin occupy quite an exceptional position in the preferences of the consumers and the interest of industry, since they provide human organism with high-quality proteins, vitamins, and minerals. At the same time, a constant challenge is faced by the health sector around the world to uncover the factors associated with the etiology of several diseases. Much attention has therefore been paid to develop animal products with physiological functions that promote human health. Because of the increased consumer awareness and concern regarding the use of synthetic additives, extensive research has been carried out to identify safe and efficient alternatives. The fortification of animal products with natural bioactive compounds appears to improve their quality characteristics and protect consumers against oxidation and bacterial spoilage effects. This Special Issue welcomes original research papers and review articles on the effects of natural bioactive compounds on animal products.
