Special Issue in Molecules: Recovery of Phytochemicals from Forest Materials
Issues with food authenticity, surfacing frequently, have led to an increased awareness and interest in the field of food authenticity and fraud. There is a need to understand factors that contribute to the occurrence of food fraud, as well as novel detection technologies and the associated statistical techniques used to detect adulteration in food products. We are currently inviting papers on studies on various aspects of food identity, food authenticity and food fraud for this Special Issue of Foods. This includes the full multidisciplinary spectrum of analytical chemistry, physics, statistics, food quality management, criminology, marketing, consumer sciences, and economic sciences.
