Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recent advancements in dairy technology and changing consumer preferences, e.g., reinforcing health-promoting properties, antioxidative properties, and reducing calorific value, have become popular. Therefore, this Special Issue on “New Frontiers in Dairy Technology and Hydrocolloids” will expand our knowledge of the abovementioned topic and will be mainly focused on: Innovations in the production of all types of dairy products, e.g., cheese, processed cheese, cheese sauces, yoghurts, dairy desserts; recent advances in milk processing technology and development of new dairy products, fortified and reformulated dairy products with health-promoting properties (reduction of fat, lactose and salt levels); quality control (physicochemical, rheological, biochemical, enzymatic, safety microbiological, sensory and stability properties of dairy products), consumer preferences, and acceptance and market research; validation of new technologies and the effects of various additives and processing variables in systems containing dairy ingredients; functional properties of milk proteins and hydrocolloids; and the use of thermal and non-thermal treatment for milk and dairy product preservation.
